    Top 8 things I hate about being a nurse

    What do I love about nursing? I work with interesting people that I like and who make me a better person, and my work is different every day. (Some of that may be specific to my workplace!) I will admit I'm not so crazy about the achy feet.

    No Nursing Shortage At The Present Time

    There's no nursing shortage. There was a "shortage" of nurses willing to accept whatever pay and conditions an employer deigned to offer; however, with all those new grads in dire straits with nursing school loans and no job, that situation is changing. Corporate America doesn't care how many people it has to put into debt as long as it can reduce its expenses. I would tell anyone considering nursing school now to NOT do it unless they already work in a medical setting and have assurance of a job when they graduate.

    Crossed the line... or expected behavior?

    You appear to have been insensitive to the situation. When you're a student, you don't want to be the "dominant force" in the room. It was an environment where you don't really know what's going on, and you're better off listening much more than you talk. Is it possible that this is not the only time you've been obtuse in this way, that that is why the nursing school has an issue with you? I think your heart is in the right place. And sometimes you do everything "right" and still catch flak. But I get the feeling you charged in where it wasn't appropriate, and that maybe you do that often, just out of passion to do good things.
