This thread makes me think of the other day at my second job....This guy I'd just done a nursing assessment
on ends up telling me that he makes $25.00/hr as a person who delivers and installs doors. Even though this is only about $3.00 more/hr than I make (with my still new RN pay), it still just made me kinda mad, especially just thinking about all the crap we nurses have to endure on a daily basis!
Don't get me wrong...I love what I do, but sometimes (well actually kinda often) I find myself wondering...."and I do this again...why?"
I think nurses should get paid double what their current salaries are to really be comminsurate with what we do and the accountability we assume!
OK...I'm done. Thanks for reading.
