    Welcome to all nurses.

    ...you will still lift as a nurse. Or get injured. As I type this I am hurting from a hip injury (no fracture) from Oct. 2003 when a patient fell on me and we went to the floor. She was on the toilet. I had another RN with me helping her to and from the toilet. My injury flares up now and then.

    ...so, choose nursing only if it is a passion of yours or you will be doing a job that doesn't involve pt. care.
