I came across this blog post this AM that talks about the aggravating reality we Nurses and Nurse Practitioners are facing these days. The hard truths about our health care system and the direction it’s heading:

I can’t refute any of the truths the student discusses, but I don’t think it will change my mind or deter me from keeping my glass half full.
What about you?
