    Nurses are the real heroes ?

    Military for a paycheck? You ever see a military paycheck. They do it for a lot of reasons but please not for a paycheck. How about the solders that never see a battle. That fight a war of nerves the ones that are in the silos on top of enough nuclear power to vaporize the world, the ones sailing around the world trying to keep the waters safe, how about the cost guard rescue. Yeah they do it for a paycheck. Civilians sicken me.

    How about the US congress they start the wars. They sign the checks that patriotic men and women have to pay for with their lives. How many of those slobs in congress ever wore the uniform of this country. Very easy to condemn the military, when it's those bums in congress that are to blame. When I was in I worked among heroes. A GI doesn't have a say in what war he will fight and die. Presidents start wars and then just ride off into the sunset.

    I'm not a hero, I'm just a guy doing a job for money. If they didn't pay me I wouldn't be a nurse. Getting a little tier of nurse Hero thing.

    Puerto Rico nurses are not international

    There must be a reason for this post somewhere. Has the education of the US sunk that low that people do not know that? But do they know what actor from Puerto Rico won an Oscar for play a Frenchman?

    Is being a nursing student actually fun?

    Fun? If you wear the right party hat to the autopsy it can be a lot of chuckles.

    She is getting you ready for the outside world...away from the comfort of the classroom. Too many students today, and you can read them on this board, think they are being pick on. She wants you sharp because you will have a lot of peoples lives in you hands. She comes from a different country. Maybe that is the way that she was taught. Of course she will talk down to you. She is the teacher and you are not. You don't learn from the easy teachers You learn from the hard ones. But if you have real trouble from the teacher sit down and have a talk with her. No talk go to her supervisor and say "No Talk...No money" You have that right.

    Are there really enough jobs???

    In most place they'er not. Nursing schools don't train you because there is a job waiting for you. They train you because that is how they make their money.

    Refusing a Clinical assignment

    Back when I was in school, if you refused anything you were out the door. But in this respect every bodies belief no matter how loony it is. Probably

    "No nurses of color....."

    I'm sorry I don't know what got into me. This Yankee remembers Newark, Watts and others burning we are no closer today then we were in the 60's. That's when the phase "Kill Whitey" was coined. Black and white racism has just gone underground.

    We were getting close in the 60's then a gun shot changed the world forever.

    I cried at work is it embarrassing? How do I get over this?

    Hey, kid. In this business you have to get the emotion out some way. Ether you let it out by crying or you let it builds up inside of you until you reach for the bottle, or take the pills or you get so burned out you 'take that long swim',(suicide). Never apologize for being human. For as that old French guy Edmond Rostand, who wrote 'Cyrano de Bergerac', said "There is nothing more sublime then tears...Nothing.
