Yes, nurses play an important role when it comes to patient care however it's the doctor that makes all the decisions. We are merely an extension of the physicians when it comes to taking care of your family member so I feel our wages are more than fair. I am also an RN and have to say $40 an hour is being modest. I actually make closer to $50 an hour and have no complaints.
