For nurses, sitting down for a half-hour to enjoy lunch or dinner might not always be in the cards. And working while hungry is never a good idea. But any nurse with pockets, a purse or a knapsack (or who can store a few items at the nurses’ station) can easily carry these goodies just in case there’s no time for a good meal.
