It is interesting that all these problems that Nurses face in the States, such as unsafe staffing levels, poor retention, lack of resources, no support form management, are problems that are global. It is the same in the UK and from what I understand talking to other foreign nurses, it is the same everywhere. So, why is it that these problems are endemic to nursing? Is it that nursing attracts certain 'types' of people who are willing to work in fairly intolerable circumstances and generally put patents needs first before their own? Do nurses just not complain? Why do nurses agree to keep working overtime when, yes they are helping out their workmates, but they are really helping out the management for why do they need to sort out staffing issues when their nurses keep bailing them out?And the list goes on...... I am not describing nurses as doormats or belittling my profession before any one gets upset with me but I am just playing devils advocate and I think its a valid point I am making and just gives food for thought!
