I am one of those BC nurses that has put in my resignation and
am going to the US. I can not stand anymore of the bulling
patriarchial schmuckie patronizing behavior of some of these
liberal male cabinet ministers. Colin Hansen was on the news
tonight and I almost got sick with his politicing. I invite him to
spend any night in the trenchs with us in the hospitals espescially
the hot spots. He can come sit right at the new desk I have
in the back forty of ER (which is now the ICU) right under a
exhaust fan that blows dust and god knows what else and
beside this there isn't even enough room between beds for the
patients to break wind. I am going because there is slightly
better staffing and patient nurse ratios and better educational
opportunities and support, not for the money or the benifits.
Yes, as an agency nurse I decide my schedule, and that's really great, but the job itself is just the same.
I actually talked to a recruiting company from BC, and was so disheartened to learn about the part time thing still going on. When will they learn? How many nurses have to leave before they catch on?
PS. Fergus tell me what are the "fast ferries" I've been reading about here? Sounds hillarious in a typical governmental kinda way. And, I've been to BC and I don't think I'd wanna leave there either. It's gorgeous!
