I am so happy to hear this. So an exterminator and window washer work harder than a nurse in an ICU, REHAB or Ortho? I highly doubt that. I know a nurse who tore her rotator cuff because she had to act quickly. Her client who had a CVA started to vomit while on his back. If she hadn't quickly turned him, he would have aspirated. 10 years later, she still suffers with shoulder damage and pain. So please NY, don't say that nursing is not physically more demanding than exterminator and window washing!! This is just one of many stories, I am sure.
