According to the news there is a nursing shortage in the USA. With my rose colored glasses that means the value of a nurse is pretty high. Specially a nurse that shows up for duty on time, provides not good but great patient care, able to follow hospital policy, board of nursing requirements, manage staff, answer questions from the doctors,be cursed by patients, pulled from a normal area to another unit to work and cover a new unit and the list goes on with the many things one person juggles.
To find a nurse to wear those shoes should be looked at as great value.
What is your value? Give yourself credit. Here is my story: http://angelabrook.com/about-angela-brooks
