    I think this is the best written piece of advice here, along with a later post by rn/writer. Instead of the knee-jerk, playground-mentality of "-gasp- I'm telling!", the so-called cheater should be...

  8. Man who is vent dependent, quadriplegic wants to die, hospital says no.

  9. Does it bother you when someone wants to be a nurse just for the money?

  10. Ever had to take care of someone you knew and/or didn't like?
    This is a good point. You may even have to take care of a jerk, only to find that they're behaving that way because they're sick and miserable... and nice as pie when they're healthy!

  14. Nurses, are you glad that Obamas Healthcare Bill Passed?
    I really wonder how many people who are against the health care bill have insurance already. I'd bet that the majority of them do. I wonder how many of them know what it's like to be unable to afford...

  15. Ignorance is bliss
    I absolutely agree with this 100%. I hear this from family all the time, and it's irritating. I have told them to not believe what the media keeps saying about nursing because it is not true; the...
