    All the reasons you cited as why you hate nursing are all the same reasons I would NEVER encourage anyone to become a nurse! I am so thankful my daughter didn't become a nurse, I know she would be hating her life right now if she had done so (she became dental hygienist).

    I have 2 E.r. docs that live on my street(I am not rich,far from it,I live in a 700sq.ft apartment in the back of an olllllllllllld beach house,I have a disabilty,I work 30 hours and am going from middle class to poor d/t health,call off' doc appts.,you get the pic) Both of said E.r. docs have 2 lovely youg daughters,both sid E.R. docs asked me how I like nursing...I replied "Would you encourage your beautiful daughters to go into nursing?" Both docs replied "Oh my lord,no way!" Perfect huh?
