If s*** hit the fan like that, massive EMP strikes, no electricity for years, working for no food or pay? You really think people will be thinking about coming into work and being a nurse? Me....Screw everything, I will be looking to survive and be with my loved ones. The weak and vulnerable will perish. The strong and violent sadly will win and control. You cannot imagine the mass chaos and hysteria that will take place when that happens...forget "going to work at the hospital" my dear. And might I say WHEN that happens...because sooner than not, that is what is going to happen. ALWAYS think yourself and your family's needs first, it is all you have at the end of the day.
