What do you wish the world knew about nursing?

I wish the world knew that nurses are so incredibly smart. Really, they don't get the credit they deserve! They have to make split second decisions about a patients life before the doctor has a chance to get there. They make the decision about whether something is of enough concern to call a doctor back in in the middle of the night. They are wicked quick to decision making, brave, and smart people. I think some people, even medical professionals themselves, have gotten stuck in the past about who nurses are and what they're capable of.
