My work doesn’t take a whole lot of brain power, but dealing with the general, up-tight snobby and demeaning public is…I was, until last week, a server in a high class sports bar in Portland Oregon.
Sometimes, most times I laughed to myself that I took my job and my love of doing this job [...]

It has always amazed me how much nurses are willing [...]

I got [...]

I happened upon this site quite by accident. Once here and being a nurse (who absolutely loves “Nursing”, albeit not all aspects of my job: paperwork, overtime, the weather (i am a home care nurse), and constantly feeling like i am “running on empty”) I must say one thing.
The Reality is I do love Nursing, [...]
