All suits would be required to do a minimum of 1 week per quarter of clinical time on various units and would get the heaviest assignments with the worst families.
All paperwork would be eliminated. We would dictate our notes the way the docs do. Wear a headset even and just talk as you do your assessment, patient teaching, etc.
Doctors, executives, etc. that treat nurses with respect.
100.00 per hour minimum.
All vacation tiem approved.
All supplies and equipment available and in working order.
Managers who remember where they came from and who actually give a damn.
Health benefits when I retire.
THE WINNING LOTTERY NUMBER!!!!! STAT!!!!!
