hi AGAIN.... sorry, made a boo boo on the first try....
anyways, who is tired of being underpaid? AND tired of having your benefits reduced? I feel nurses are one of the most underpaid professions out there. No wonder there is a critical shortage!
We monitor to prevent death and harm, and save lifes. SO why the pitiful salary, and cutting off the good benefits? Do others feel this way too?
Okay agency is an answer, but we as nurses are the largest group in healthcare and the most disrespected. You know why we are disrespected? Because we are not united. LPN, ADN, Diploma, BSN-----who can keep up anymore? Nurses we need to unite. We need a united voice--if and when this happens, we can fight for what we want and get it. Also the curriculum for nursing (BSN) needs to include courses in maybe policy, grantwriting, business, or political science because we need to make our voices heard and negotiate in our best interest! How many of us can't even afford to insure out families? And before anybody misunderstands me I am insinuating that we need a union. This is not the issue. We need our voices to be heard and we need an understanding of how to be as one. Look at lawyers and doctors...do they have the same complaints nurses do? No, because they are respected and united. Let's work on being a united profession
