moko, i agree that we need more info.
are you a nurse or considering becoming a nurse?
are you crying a lot because you're depressed or extra sensitive?
yes, you can be "emotional" and be a good nurse, but that is not the same as reacting 'emotionally'.
iow, you may feel a, b, or c in any given situation in nursing...
but that doesn't mean it'd be appropriate/professional to act upon those feelings (as a norm...not talking about episodic).
you could feasibly feel 'emotional' if a colleague treats you like dirt;
or your boss, a dr, a patient, or family member...
the list goes on.
my point being, more often than not, we nurses need to suck it up and conduct ourselves in a manner that will not create attention or drama on the floor.
now...having a good cry on the way home is perfectly ok and even beneficial, if that's what you need to do.
it took me years to quell some of my emotions at work.
actually...that's a lie.
i never did learn to keep certain feelings in check when feeling emotional.
i eventually did learn to reduce the volume, but i somehow managed to remain on loud speaker.
as stated, it really would be helpful hearing more about your situation, rather than speculate.
if you are not a nurse, do not throw in the towel!
nursing is comprised of a myriad of personalities.
being "emotional" is extremely benign, esp when contrasted with other types.
be well moko.
