I think GEN Y is going to drive nursing wages down, unless they shape up! GEN Y thinks you buy a degree, instead of earn it; they chant 'C's earn degrees!' GEN Y cries and throws a fit at the nursing school director when they fail for receiving a 69.9% when it was clear there would be no rounding come the end of the semester. GEN Y thinks that 1-5 minutes late is just as on time as 1-5 minutes early. GEN Y thinks makeup, hair highlights, sweet shoes, a glam watch, a neon stethoscope, and butt-accentuating scrubs
look good/professional/put together. GEN Y lacks the tactfulness and class of their elders. GEN Y lacks respect, dedication, and hard work.
STEP IT UP! Nurses are highly respected as a group. We, GEN Y are the future of nursing. Our behaviors, attitudes, appearances, and work ethic are going to need to improve if we want to remain a highly respected (and well-paid) group of professionals!
