Let me begin by saying I am a 2nd career BSN student, married to an RN. I have parents in their 80s and am concerned about the level of care they will get should they need to ever go into a nursing home. Recently, the Minneapolis Star Tribune ran the following article about nurses getting "2nd" (and more) chances after screwups like stealing narcotics, failing to do CPR etc and they are still nurses. Personally, I am embarrassed that I may be grouped with people like this and am not in favor of leniency. Thoughts?
