truth is only the movies were a joke, i actually am a nurse. didn't have the $ or the patience for med school or i woulda been an md so nursing was next best thing. and private duty means i can pick my own hours and my own cases and make a good salary doing it. i'd rather be independently rich but this is next best thing for me.
