Until you become a nurse your opinion does not matter to me. I am not condoning anything you have mentioned just trying to make you see more than your side. For some people, whining is the only way they know to deal with the stresses of our career. Nursing is a caring field if you make it one but if you focus on all of the negatives then you too will be a whiner. Some people wear balloons and teddy bears as a way to express their individuality and it does not make them less competent than anyone else. You have an inflated narcissistic attitude. In regards to #5, your statement is broad and general and you have given no proof to substantiate it (just your opinion, which for me, does not matter because you aren't a nurse and you do not know what you are talking about). Finally, you are the person or people you talk about. You are a basher.
