    Trump, messing with Obama care. Insurance companies are scrambling to survive. They need to cut costs. Us old farts are the first to go.

    I believe I've done what you're doing.

    At that time, we were growing really fast with only a handful nurses. Within 2 years, the company added approx. 50K members from three different insurance companies and man talking about drowning.

    Anyhow, it sucks to hear that they are letting you go! Must be a big loss to all of your co-workers, especially the new ones.

    I wonder if my former employer is scrambling now too.

    Think they all are scrambling.. from huge government cuts. Thank you, pretty sure I will be missed.. for a little while. We are all expendable with corporate health care.

    Well, that sucks. Here's hoping you land on your feet and kick a few people in the head on the way down.

    Thanks so much. Not feeling the need to kick anybody. Just so wish, all of us nurses could be appreciated for what we do.
