You hit the nail on the head! I've always said, and I really believe this: if you go into nursing for the "money" you will be dissatisfied! On the days that aren't crazy, we aren't worth what we get. On the days from H___ we are worth 10x times what we get. Yep you're nutty one day, compassionate one day and counting hrs another day. 37 years, majority in ED, I think I can speak to this one.
