    who care if someone is a doctor or not. really.
    You cared enough to point it out a few posts ago, basically making nurses feel like they aren't as smart as "doctors" like pharmacists because they go through more science classes than nurses do.

    Just try making it through a nursing program and then talk to me about science classes. Between chemistry, anatomy & physiology, microbiology, pathophysiology, and pharmacology....plus all the nursing classes...we're quite educated in the area of science.

    then why do they make more money than RNs? i never said that nurses are too dumb to take the classes that for example a pharmacist takes. it is true that the classes that to be pharmacists take are harder because a person who went through it and then decided to become a nurse told me.

    Actually, the word "doctor" originated in academia, with the PhD. The medical profession "borrowed/adopted" the title.

    even a pharmacist school used the term "doctor" for pharmacists. i guess people want to be called doctors for studying a LOT. i heard that there is a law that will add a doctor in front of NP for nurses. so you would call them "doctor practitioner" or something like that :uhoh21: and there were medical doctors going crazy over that one

    do doctors really constantly tell nurses what to do?

    Not harder, different. Pharmacy school is mostly Chemistry, which not everyone is cut out for. Nursing combines all different types of science.

    As far as money goes, what in the world does that have to do with anything?!

    That's kind of their job, to give nurses orders. If you want to be the one in charge, you don't want to be a nurse. We have many things that we CAN do on our own, but basically most of our orders come directly from the MD.

    im just asking because several nurses complained that theyre sick of getting orders from doctors when it is the doctor's job to give orders and it is the nurse's job to take them.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

    If you think the reason nurses should get paid more is because they have to touch bodily fluids, then you're REALLY going into the wrong field. There are a million reasons we deserve more money, but that is way down on the list. Why don't you become a pharmacist then, since they make big bucks and it's not a yucky job?

    i know. and these are the kind of people who will be helping new nursing students out in the future when there is a need of nurses

    you know why nurses are sooo stressed out a lot of times? they dont take care of themselves. taking care of pts is important, but not if you are not happy with yourself. go on a vacation and come back when you can have a sense of humor and it will make nursing a better field to be in for the rest of to be nurses.
    I'M AN EXCELLENT RESOURCE TO ANY NEW NURSE THAT SHOWS INTIATIVE AND WHO ISN'T LAZY. I WAS BEING VERY HONEST WITH MY POSTS TO YOU--ALL OF THEM :chuckle AND BY THE WAY I'M NOT STRESSED OUT-- I TAKE EXCELLENT CARE OF MYSELF AND MY PATIENTS AND I'M COMPLETELY HAPPY WITH MYSELF AND MY CAREER. I AM GOING ON A VACATION IN JUNE. I ALSO HAVE A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR. AND I STILL THINK YOU SHOULD RECONSIDER YOUR CAREER CHOICES.----ACTRESS--BEAUTICIAN---SECRETARY...ANYTHING THAT DOESN'T INVOLVE CLEANING UP BODILY FUNCTIONS
