    I think you have a great attitude. As wooh said, once the economy turns around nurses will have more power and opportunities. I was a BSN grad in 1978, worked med-surg for one year, then went directly to agency. Soon after I started agency, I was floated by the hospital to the ICU. (Can you imagine such a thing happening in 2012?) I loved it and was motivated. I wanted to go to work each day because I learned so much and the staffing ratios were good, plus it was a teaching hospital. For years I worked at that same hospital, in the ICU, through the agency, Monday through Friday 7-3:30 because, back then, there was a nursing shortage. After that, I was always able to get jobs in ICUs or CCUs because of the experience I'd gained. Those were the golden days of nursing for me. It was before managed care.
