This is what my teacher told us. She said there are plenty of nurses out there to take care of the future rising amount of patients, its just that they are not working. They have quit (more than likely) because of the poor treatment they received as employees. I would love to stand on my soap box and say "come on you guys if we stick together we can make them change" but I am still a student so my option in null at this point. I have wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember and it is my entire life. I just hope I am not setting myself up for disappointment. I do plan on becoming a CNM so I am not sure if that is any better. How many of you right out of the nursing school
shoot are thinking this is not what you signed up for?
