I think In general that the public has no idea how much knowledge that nurses have. Nurses know pathophysiology , chemistry, anatomy and how to calculate how much medicine to give, how fast to give it and what the side effects are. Nurses know that you may show your anger at the the nurse when you are really angry at the situation. They know that you haven’t slept for days because you are so scared and helpless. Nurses spend more time at the bedside than anyone else in the hospital.
