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

They have a monthly payment plan if you cannot swing the full amount, so I pay $22per month.
