I responded to a poll today asking how long have you been a nurse. I struck me that many of the responses were positive in reagrds to nursing as a career choice. I would love to hear why you stay in nursing.
We all recognize that there are frustrations. I like to try to look at the positives and ask you to do the same. i found some of the comments to the poll for length of time in nursing energizing. i know there are lots of us out there who like nursing and (gasp) admit to it, but so frequently it's overshadowed by our complaints.
