    I am NOT willing to pay for that kind of crap. This is just another bureaurocratic reporting agency being turned loose on a specialized portion of the public. Just like a credit reporting agency this nurse tracker will make many mistakes. These mistakes just may keep a good honest nurse from working. The two clowns who dreamed this system up can have a bed at my place of employment.
