    As a nursing student the first patient I ever cared for as a nurse tech at the VA was HIV pos. As a licensed nurse the first patient I ever had was HIV pos. In the pre-protease inhibitor days of HIV, we used to use tons of IV bactrim on our HIV patients all of who developed pneumocystis pneumonia, many of whom would die due to the lack of effective HAART meds. Even though things have changed dramatically with the newer HAART meds there is still the treatment fatigue that sets in with having to take HAART meds every day without fail for the rest of your life for HIV patients to be able to survive. I do hope that Dr. Fauci is correct in his prediction that we will some day have a vaccine to prevent HIV.
