So they say the nursing shortage is over. WHA-AH-AA-T ?!?!?

That's what this fish looks like it's saying! It looks surprised.

That's what this fish looks like it's saying! It looks surprised.

For now.

I love how my career choice (finally made after years of hazy plans for the future, AND three years of prerequisite education)  has coincided with the fact that I still won’t get a job!

Thanks to the recession. All the retired nurses have come back to the work place to cover for their husbands and families who have lost their jobs. Hospitals aren’t hiring. Medical places are trying to get by with what they have on staff already.  But people keep getting sick. People keep going to the hospital whether they want to or not.

I dramatize for effect. In the next paragraphs of all these doom news stories, they go on to say that most nurses will go back into retirement after the pressure is off, and there will be even more nurses leaving the field in the next 10 years, just because it’s their time. And that’s where all us newbies come in. Someone has to cover the exiters. So I am still moving forward with no fear.

I just thought it was kind of funny to read this early on Saturday morning and only one week before I start full time nursing school!

Now back to our regularly scheduled posting.
