You are striving to make things better for nurses. Just asking if you've changed recently or always felt this way.

    I used to work for one of the hospitals on that Magnet list. I laugh everytime I think about them being a Magnet hospital. All I can say is, "don't do it!" PM me if you care to know which hospital on the list to stay away from.
