A Day in the Life of a Nurse

    I don't come to this site often but when here enjoy the articles never commented before but Nursing and religion are two different entities and can cause odd believes and sometimes cause a problem with presenting care to the Patients due to beliefs I have seen this happen

    Being a nurse is really hard. All the good values should be in action. Its the game of gaining trust from those people whom you do not know. Working hard because this is the source of living, of money.The term "green" is on everyone's minds these days, whether it's getting more green as in making more money, or going green environmentally. The need for more green technology and practices is definitive, as the impact on our environment from our appetites for fossil fuel machinery and methods of generation electricity have taken a toll. An effort does have to be made to repair our planet, but many consider the loss of amenities to be too great to surmount. However, there are ways of getting by: solar water heating devices, electric high speed trains getting installed for public transport, and so forth. Ifyou start going a little more green, it's like giving a cash advance to the Earth.

    Calm down everyone. I see both points of view; this is supposed to be a professional website, but it also allows for letting our professional hair down.

    Too bad this did not get more attention. But then, this is now a game playing site and Bible spouting site, not a nursing site so I am not really surprised.
