Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 12 People

    I'm An Er Nurse - I have been a nurse for 23 years and have worked in the ER since '91. I've seen a lot of tragedy, but mostly I've seen a lot more stupidity.

    I admire nurses, I think what they do is amazing. I always wanted to be a nurse, but I know I'm too stupid for that. So I will just admire them from afar.
