    Personally, prefer kettle popped popcorn........and because hospitals don't have retirement pensions; like the government, police, firefighters,teachers and the CEO/administration, for their employees and wallstreet stole the rest, I will be as old as dirt and they will have to drag my stethoscope from my cold dead fingers when I drop dead during my shift

    .

    But the subject of the post is that there is no nursing shortage.....lets refocus and stay on topic.

    I would like to say there is no conspiracy. When did employment for nurses (old and new) get hard? Around about the same time unemployment shot up and it got hard for everyone. Why is that so hard to believe?

    True, at least to a degree. but when you see the ads, encouraging schooling that we know isn't going to lead to a job, I see uncontrolled capitalism at its best (worst).

    Well schools to a certain degree are business when they want to make more money they need more students so they advertise. Most marketed products are going to tell you you don't need them and that they are crap.

    Also overall advertising for all kinds of vocational programs / college education programs are up. Want to enter the exciting field of customs and border patrol? We just don't noticed them as much because we are nurses

    tothepointLVN,

    You must post the recipe for your carmel popcorn with sea salt right here on this thread so that when people come to read, they can already have it made. Also, if everybody has a bowl (of popcorn that is) then we can throw popcorn at annoying posters too!

    I'm totally serious.

    Please do. Ever since you referred to it, I've been desperate for homemade caramel corn!
