Bet you wouldn't say that to a nurse's face. Especially if you happened to be in the hospital at the time.

Excellent point. Nurses have complex jobs involving medicine, technology and human relations. And they have to be competent all the time. The pressure must be enormous. One of my daughter-in-laws worked on the Cancer ward for years. She did critical care that often ended with death. She finally had to leave that job- the emotional toll was too much.
Nurses work in life-and-death situations everyday. They deserve our support. They support us at critical times in our lives.

Hey BoB- I've spent weeks in the hospital including the ICU. Drs are the ones hanging out in the cafeteria and lounge, not Nurses. I've watched Nurses alot and depended on their care. They are on the front lines of medical care. Where are you?
