Why the hell is the ANA always so polite - to doctors, hospitals, you name it? I think they should take care of their members first. I think THEY should make the effort to attract nurses.

The ANA tells me if I haven't figured out what they are doing it's my fault.

Sorry, ANA, it's not polite to criticize. The fact is it is YOUR fault. Unless you grow up, very soon, you will simply die - as fewer and fewer nurses are willing to be so polite.

So far, the ANA has done nothing for me.

I'm still waiting. It is up to you. And if you don't come get me, I'll just have to find someone or something else.

One more thing. When the AMA wants support, they never wait for physicians to find them - they hunt them down. They never wait to be asked their opinion either. They give it whether anyone wants to hear it or not.

I want that type of professional organization. Not one that says, "Please, hospital, may I" and blames ME if they don't do their job.

I recently joined the ANA, but was told to go thru my state nursing association so I went under the Kentucky Nurses Association and found the fee and applied. They have a monthly payment plan if you cannot swing the full amount, so I pay $22per month.
