I think he was writing about what specialty he worked in, dont take it personal. Just because he didnt specify other nurse specialties does not mean he thinks less or doesnt personally acknowledge all nurses,
When Im in the middle of the craziest shifts ever, I wonder why I chose to work in the ER. But after reading this I realize I have got to witness some amazing things both good and bad and wouldnt trade them for the world. I have also got to work in the "trenches" with some amazing people and have bonded with many. Thanks for a great article and reminding all nurses and non-nurses what a great and enormous job we are doing and reminding "lay" people what a toll this profession can take on us personally.
