Ironically, I went into nursing for all the wrong reasons, job security and money. But something wonderful happened along the way. It became a calling, a vocation, if you would. There are so many things wrong with nursing and healthcare, but I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
I've worked in bad places and great places, and learned so much from each.
There's some people out there saying they don't send soldiers out to war without the proper equipment, but as an army wife and sister in law I know they do send troops out without the proper equipment.
There's nothing wrong, or cowardly with saying that you can not work in this type of situation, I have no doubt you are making wonderful contributions away from the bedside, but for those of us that can, say a prayer please.
Be strong brothers and sisters, and wherever you are, doing whatever you need to, be safe.
