Quote of the day

Said by a scrub tech when she explained why she decided to get a nursing degree instead of a business degree:

"I decided to go ahead and do nursing because I can make more money as a nurse than I can if I get a business degree and go work for Big Insurance Co. in town."

All us nurses who were in hearing range stopped, looked at her, and then laughed hysterically to ourselves. Money isn't the reason any of my coworkers or I went into nursing, it was for patient care. If we were looking for a big salary as an RN, we'd be sorely disappointed.
