Nurses are vital to hospitals

I found the article on the nurse strike very riveting and informative (Journal, Sept. 21). Twenty-thousand nurses on strike at the same time would definitely hurt the hospitals they work at. If you’re going to become a nurse, you must realize that you are often vital to the structure of the hospital. The hospitals could have a serious emergency and with 20,000 nurses not working, it is potentially a disaster waiting to happen. I really hope the strike was worth it, and that they got what they wanted. Jake Bartel, Rocklin
