    I believe women still think that we can have it all. We may think that we are smart enough to have(a career,children,husband, be active in the PTA and the boardroom)it all by having hired help,but we still suffer the hazaards that this study lists. Most women do work a combination of 60 or more hours a week at home and at their paid jobs. We must realize that all this takes its toll in one way or another. Family vacations can be a big job in itself. The planning and logistics alone takes time and work.
    Women will have to plan to be away from work for a number of years if they have children/family obligations or career goals requiring that we receive additional education.
    Our employment system does not forgive women or nurses for taking time off. Experience as a nurse is accepted if it is recent, in the last five years. Only the last ten years of experience is requested on a resume. Any other experience is not held in high regard.
    Being in school while taking time off from work is not considered experience, but should be. School is very time consuming and does not generate an income until reemployed. Should school for women (and men) who have been in the workforce be considered work? I think so, because to be able to pay back the student loans, women (and men) have to go back to work.
