So much for having higher nursing education, huh?
If nurses are never going to achieve a professional status instead of being treated like blue collar workers are treated, why bother to pay so much money into obtaining higher nursing education? Why bother to have a BSN or MSN?
It seems to me that no matter if we have MORE education than doctors or not, we're still going to be treated like "second class citizens".
I will NOT work overtime without being paid for it, no matter where I work.
I guess the next thing they will do is put nurses on a salary, and get rid of all the "clocking in" meters since it won't matter if we clock out after an eight or twelve hour shift.
The "women's movement" is NOT helping women to advance in this country. As I see it, we're going "backwards" NOT forwards.
