As a "20-something" I'm kind of insulted by this, because not ALL "20-somethings" are lazy or spoiled. Nursing is a 2nd career for me, I worked for 4 years after getting my first degree and then decided to go back to school for my BSN. I've worked hard from the beginning to get where I am and now I'm working hard in the unit of my preference.
Maybe I'm not the norm. Obviously you've all seen a trend in the younger nurses which caused this thread to be written in the first place. I'm just saying to not dismiss all younger nurses. You never know people's stories and where they come from, but its certainly easy to assume. :)
