In this tough economic time I'm so grateful to have a full time job. However, there are just days like today I rather stay in bed. I often have to remind myself of the rewards of working and things I can do with the money I will make. Here are just a few things that gives me that extra motivation to get up and get ready for work:

1) I need to work to first pay my bills

2) I'm getting married in 6 months and have a TON of things to pay off for the wedding

3) There are so many new grads and experienced nurses without jobs

4) I actually like helping people

Okay, so what gives you that extra umph to roll out of bed and get to work?

1. I'm two months pregnant- I need to pay for my own health insurance and my place of employment wont pay me for my time off when I have the baby, plus I need to save money

2. Rent, food, other bills, student loan.

The biggest motivating factor for me is giving my son a chance for a better life. I hope that I can sock enough money away to pay for his college in full, so he won't have to deal with student loans later.

I love the job and love helping people.

The husband's paycheck covers our living expenses, I work because I enjoy spending money.

money.

i also like being that dreaded term, the "patient advocate." there's a celine dion song that sums how i hope at least some of my patients feel about my care:

you were my strength when i was weak,

you were my voice when i couldn't speak,

you were my eyes when i could see,

you saw the best there was in me,

lifted me up when i couldn't reach

you gave me faith 'cause you believed,

i'm everything i am because you loved me.

1. I can't afford to retire yet.

2. I need health insurance -- and I still have several years to go before I can get Medicare at age 65.

3. Yes, there are still things I would like to accomplish professionally. I still have professional hopes and dreams. ... But they aren't what drives me to go to work.
