Стр. 48, упр. 4
Frankly speaking I wouldn't like to be a nurse because this job involves a full commitment and a great responsibility dealing with patients and their families. I can't see here any career prospects and promotions in spite of learning all the time. More over nurses get no respect from their peers, managers, or administration, a lot of paperwork and patient load is huge. So to sum it u I see more disadvantages in this job than advantages.
