I'm the exact same way. I found out when I was in the hosp having my first child. I KNEW I'd had all of my immunizations as a child, but they said I was negative and gave me the MMR. I had another baby the following year, same thing happened. A year later I was in having baby #3 and they tried to give it to me AGAIN. I refused that one. When I went to nursing school I was negative and had to get ANOTHER MMR. I just don't show immunity and never will.
FYI, critical thinking was taught from day one in my ADN program. That's what it's all about. Skills can be taught to a monkey ~ that was a quote from one of my nursing instructors. We were taught to be good nurses, not trade workers.
At my hospital, BSN gets you a quarter more per hour. I was a single mom doing it all on my own, needed my degree fast, chose an ADN program which has a better rep than the local BSN program, and have never regretted it. My student loans are about $10K less than they would've been w/ the BSN so I couldn't see .25/hour doing me much good.

I know some nurses swear by Dansko's but I think they are horrid. They hurt, they're hard, they do nothing for me. And I think they're hideous as well. LOL
I wear Saucony Cohesion NX tennis shoes. They take me through my whole 12.5 hours and feel like cushions the whole time.
I do think shoes are something that's different for each person, though.
I beg to differ. It happened to me. Demerol IM, hit my sciatic nerve. That was 19 years ago and I still have pain at the injection site, especially if I get bumped there.
I'm 5'1" and weighed about 95 lbs at the time, not sure if that made a difference, but to make a sweeping generalization such as yours isn't a good idea.
