    Yeah, tone doesn't always translate...much of the time what you write is what we read...

    Nevertheless, as one of those "experienced" nurses, I really don't have a big problem with the new nurses and their idealism. First off, experience will definitely rub a good bit of that off. Secondly, some of their criticism of "vet. nurses" is BOUND to be valid and it takes a big person to stop and say, "well, maybe she has something there." I've just recently discovered this web site, and it's full of wonderful information and great stories from fantastic nurses. I've also read a lot of posts from nurses who are so burned out, so bitter, just downright MEAN and completely empty of compassion due to their experiences, and that makes me very sad for the profession. Health care is a scary thing right now, with hospitals dumping unsafe patient loads on nurses and squeezing every ounce of energy and good will from its best employees to sour, impatient, vitriolic caregivers on the other end giving it right back to the very people who have nothing to do with any of it: the patients. I honestly would probably hesitate to recommend nursing to a young person right now unless they are planning to go into one of a very few specialties. I hope things turn around, but I'm a little wary of hoping too hard.
    I tell people to wait until the new health bill takes effect and we see what the real results of it are. I honestly have not run into one single person who has any idea how things will go. Lots of strong opinions about it, but very few well informed, well thought out ideas about where we are headed and why.

    Not too long ago, I was more like you. I somewhat agreed with the idealism and liked younger nurses who were unafraid of going against the grain. These days, IDK. I don't feel as strongly about it. Nursing has changed since I've been around, and I've only been doing this 5 years. Way TOO MUCH change in five years if you ask me, and very little of it for the good. It almost seems that if you are not at least a little burnt and bitter, you won't survive.

    Um, I know it's a few posts back, but a chapter 7 bankruptcy actually stays on your credit for 10 years. And it won't even wipe out the evil "credit card rate" private student loans (the kind that can't be forgiven through public service either grrrr).

    Taking out a loan is an agreement to pay it back. If you are an ethical person, you will pay it back. There is no excuse for an employed nurse not to pay. If you don't want to pay, don't borrow it.
    Exactly! They should do it to everyone -- use any licensing info, social security numbers, whatever necessary to track them down. It's ridiculous. All the whining and poor me crap. If you don't want to pay it back, don't borrow it. Simple.

    why is it okay to suspend nurses license but not respiratory therapist, or physical therapist, or occupational therapist. I know a respiratory therapist who has never paid anything on her loans, but nurses are the targets. Not fair. Cease all suspensions until its a law across for the board for a disciplines.
