i value hard work
I have lived my whole life wanting to be a nurse like my mother. I chose a difficult path by having children first, but I had a career plan and stuck with it. Little did I know that the nursing profession/medical field was taking a turn for the worse and would send me into downward [...]more
This story is long, but please take your time to read it. It contains some things that might make you think twice about the things that go on behind the golden arches…
I began working for McDonald’s in Australia last year, and if my experiences were in the contract’s terms and conditions then I never would [...]
I have only been an RN for a year, in a department I am NOT crazy about at all. Staffing is awful, I’ve experienced a true workplace bully, and because our patients are relatively healthy, they treat us like their personal assistants.

What do I dislike? Nurses garner no respect from their peers, managers, or administration. Families treat [...]
Dear colleagues (new and old),
I have been a nurse (and no I won’t reveal my level of education as I don’t believe that it designates my level of intelligence or commitment to our profession) for over 25 years. THERE IS ROOM FOR ALL OF US.
To my new sisters and brothers in the profession: WELCOME! Our [...]
I’ve held other jobs after the one I’m writing about now. I was a case management assistant, and it was the BEST job ever except people ruined it! If i had to work for a big organization and put up with the p.c. crap THAT still was the only job that would make me do [...]more
I’m a graphic designer. Part freelance, part contract, and part full time (I kind of do my own thing). I decided to write something about myself, because I stumbled across this site and noticed all that there was said about graphic design is negative things. So here we go:
A lot of the views on the other [...]
