Hi pauleckler,

Yes I agree with your comments. I have another sister who is a nurse. I think she hates it (loves the patients, hates the 'boss'). The hours really are bad, they are very much overworked and understaffed, so no wonder we need to go outside the US to recruit. I think it has to do with the cost of healthcare. As with most businesses, the first place to cut cost is by hiring fewer workers and laying off the ones you have.

Health care is one of the most inefficient industries left on the planet! Ok, well at least in the US.
