    Do Nurses Eat Their Young?

    ]Yes nurses eat their young. Where do you think that saying came from? It sure didn't come from a new grad that was welcomed into the open "nurturing" arms of a 20 or 30 year veteran nurse! One doesn't necessarily have to be a new grad even, just new. So, to those nurses that are guilty of harrassment...that nurse that you treated so badly may one day be the nurse caring for YOU.

    What's your story? Why did you take up nursing?

    as i read the posts tonight i'm just cracking up! granted i just worked a 0545 to 2200 shift, so lots of things are funny right now. to answer the question, i became a nurse to replace the "high paying restaurant gm's" salary that i had been earning for the past 15 years. i liked working with people (i'm not crazy). i had an instructor that said if you're in it for the money, you might as well quit right now. i was in it for the money. but what i found out is that i was doing it because i cared. i swore as a gn i would not work in ltc, so guess what? i do and i love it. my heart is in surgery and i'll be there one of these days but right now my residents need me. and yes, the money is good but knowing i made a difference to someone is better.
