Everything, I ABSOLUTELY hate being a nurse
Surprisingly I do like charting unlike most nurse, but I do NOT like patient/family interactions, 12hr shifts, med passes, admissions/discharges, actively dying patients who remain FULL CODE due to their family's wishes, constantly having to deal with petty complaints from patients, management, and families. The self-centered, take-no-responsibility-for-my-health-and-blame-everyone mentality that most of my patients under 85 yrs old had. Very heavy patient assignments. Pain management patients. Being the middle-man for everything that goes on with my 6 patients and having my phone and pager constantly go off. Being blamed for things I have no control over. For the most part, not getting to eat lunch or go to the bathroom for most of the shift.
I do like collaborating with physicians, catching a problem before it gets worse, critically thinking, and helping the CNAs. Still planning to get out of nursing. I'm taking classes for medical laboratory science. Hopefully that will be a better fit for me.
