"Just" A Nurse

It never ceases to amaze me how often you'll hear someone refer to an RN as "just" a nurse. GuitarGirlRN's most recent post recounts a similar sentiment, namely that really "smart" nurses should have gone to medical school. When I hear statements like these, sadly even from some of my classmates, it makes me shake my head.

During my years as an ER tech, I worked primarily with the nursing staff, and developed mad respect for the profession.

As the saying goes, be nice to nurses. They keep doctors from accidentally killing you.
