  12. I could argue that quid pro quo is not legal in nursing... But, let's stay on your reasoning. In essence you are saying, better to be negligent, than upset the status quo, No?
  13. I love your response...I also know it is hard to have no job and sacrifice...I did it with kids, a mortgage, private schools, etc.. I received something from it that money cannot buy...I got big ups, props, respect from my children! My children also...
