ABSTRACT
An interview with Emilie Wyble, a generation Y nurse is presented. She says that generation Y and X nurses share more similarities than differences with same mindset to provide excellent patient care. When asked about older nurses' claim that they lack team spirit, she defends their need for freedom in doing their own practice and asks for the generation X nurses to respect their quality of work and not the quantity of years in practice. She points out that nurses should support each other as a team and as individuals.
