Yes! Right now hospitals are hiring new grads right out of school for positions in the ED, ICU etc... (which is scary as S#!+ to me). Back in my day people had to work their way up to get in those positions....With EXPERIENCE
People that age and younger have not seen true hard times (economic hardship) where jobs were scarce.... and people had to bust their butts to prove themselves to deserve the positions they earned.
Many young nurses I’ve seen are amazing and truly hard workers! But there’s a big portion that are entitled, spoiled, and do not know what hard work really is.
