A new breed of nurse who wants to make a nurse's salary but not really have contact with any patients. They go right into management or something that involves not touching a patient. They despise bodily fluids, lifting, pills, call lights and anything that makes them sweat. They love paperwork and making themselves look intelligent and important. And they always complain that their back hurts, but God knows from what we don't know...
