per Dr. William Goodall, vice president for regional medical affairs for Allina Hospitals and Clinics:
"There is a national standard for physicians and nurses, and the
nurses, whether I'm drawing on a pool of nurses from Minnesota
or California or Texas, it shouldn't make much difference," he said.
So, next time your hospital tells you that you're the best, or your selection & training is exclusive, or they couldn't do it without you (don't tell me they didn't this past Nurse's Week), remember, you're just a body, and they can find another.
Go Minnesota nurses!
