I wish nurses had a pension, like railroad workers or teachers.
I know nothing about retirement funds. I keep putting it off, pretending that I'll never want or have to retire.
I keep up my disability benefits, because I figure it's way more likely that I'll have to leave the bedside due to illness or injury rather than retire from it.

The ONLY financial thing I did right as a young college freshman was put money in 401K at my part-time gig. It was a fairly new concept in the 90's but I worked for a progressive boss who nagged us until we signed up.
When I think of the crdit card folks who ambushed me in the sudent union with Slinkies and chocolate bars I cringe!
I've had a SIMPLE IRA and other retirement vechicles for a while.
I NEVER leave my retirement planning up to any empoyer. I don't intend to be too poor to afford to be a patient in the hosptials where I used to work!
