  6. Dem proposes federal regulation of nurse-to-patient ratios in hospitals  S.739
    This would be nice. Poor staffing, not because of a shortage but bc of hospitals being cheap, is one of the biggest if not the biggest problem in healthcare.

  10. getting out of bed side
    Thanks. Case management does seem like a perfect fit. Getting out of bed side is probably realistically a longer term goal right now, within 3 or 4 years would be nice.

  11. Stable life vs not enough action! Do you ever envy your inpatient counterparts
    Don't be envious, like someone said before, its HIGHLY over rated. Most bed side nursing jobs are fit for dogs. I will be leaving bed side as soon as I can and never ever looking back.
