Nurse

Career as Depicted in Popular (or Unpopular) Culture

Good nurses are in high demand, so unless you get caught smothering your patients with pillows (even if they ask you to, that practice is frowned upon), you’re going to be set. Really, it’s just a matter of how well you can deal with the day-to-day stress and all that the job demands of you. That’s another reason there are so many openings for nurses - because many just can’t take it.
