Gain the respect of the public. Be more and more technically advanced. All the advanced degrees offered.

Advice they have for your nursing success

Grow a thick skin. Got eaten by slightly more experienced nurses at my first job. Also, doctors can be short tempered more due to lack of sleep than aimed at nurses. Patients sometimes are downright rude and nasty.

Fortunate that Teensmom is sympathetic to your cause...although I suspect this isn't what your instructor had in mind. A huge part of nursing is planning ahead to ensure that things are done on time...

Although points to you for being resourceful.
