Hey there! So a little background info: I start nursing school
in a couple of weeks. I did emergency veterinary medicine for 3 years and absolutely loved doing it, but despite what people say doing what you love doesn't always pay the bills which is important too.
Anyways- I have my heart set to be an ED nurse, and I hope nursing school just aids my desire to do so; however I am concerned about a couple things. 1. Children coming into the ER. I have a four year old and I'm afraid that will hit too close to home. 2. People dying- I know, I know kind of silly but I'm not sure how I would handle it. Pet pts died all the time and we euthanized so many as well. As hard as it was pets can be replaced but someones child/parent/spouse cannot...
I know I have time to figure it out but do y'all have any advice on how to get over these stresses or do you think I should consider a different field all together?
