    In india the salary for a nurse is 1500 indian rs per month.if it is converted into dollers it will be 20 usd per month .the patient nurse ratio in a icu is 6:1 which 3 patients will be ventilator patients.

    Thank you for theGreat post - I think it's interesting that no matter where a nurse practices, the problems with the profession are all the same. (The lack of respect for the nurse from patients and employers).

    Yay for your #4 on the Pros of Nursing list of 8 ... that has been one of the little things, yes, that have brightened those long shifts. I remember sometimes I'd be lucky enough to get to leave the floor to take the patient downstairs in the wheelchair, out the door, and help them into their car. Hey! They came out alive! We didn't kill them! Good luck to you where ever you are. Too bad about that cap though! haha.

    hate is a strong word therefore, i'll use "dislike". i dislike that i never work under 13 hours every shift.
