My wife, who retired from Nursing, gets a great laugh out of stories like this one: she says it's the same froth and dung that hospitals and the AMA used to put out every few years, to lure a new generation of low-wage entry-level applicants in to the business so as to keep the old hands from getting too uppity with demands for more pay or (heaven forfend!) forming unions to keep some of the profits from marching off to the 0.01% of muckety-mucks.
