We can move to different aspects of our profession without great burden.
The red tape you have to walk along and the bureaucratic hoops you have to jump through are just as exhausting.
You better grow thick skin, because the browbeating is endless, from all walks of life.
Our profession IS mostly women (it’s a fact, not an opinion). Like it or not, there IS a cattiness to the atmosphere. Not all nurses can be trusted. There is always drama.
The hospital environment is like a soap opera. “These are the days of our lives” is a surreal joke. Some people never actually leave high school.
Your job does become your life. Figure out a way to keep them separate.
You impact lives. Real human beings and their well-being is at stake. Calling off, not caring and shortcutting affects lives. If you can’t accept that heavy responsibility, do not become a nurse.
Whatever you do, don’t dare think Hollywood’s definition of a nurse is accurate in any way, shape or form.
Don’t do this for the money. You’ll waste everyone’s time, and you’ll end up putting someone at risk for injury.
Contrary to what you may think, not everyone can actually DO this job. It’s not all pills, poop and plungers.uld you ever discourage someone from becoming a nurse?
