Melanie, I agree with you, I do not want to be an administrator.  I am the director of my department of which I am the only one so, I am the director of myself.  There is not much administrative responsibility in that.  My experience with administrators is that I do not try to understand them, but I help them understand Chaplains.  I do this by showing them and talking to them about what I do.  I do talk with them about statistics and studies.  This is what they are about but, I focus on what I do and the impact that makes in this place.  With health care the way it is today, unfortunately they need to be on the business side.  That is what they are educated for.  I support them in any way I can.
