Take it from someone who has been in the field for 24 years: YOU ARE TOO GOOD A PERSON TO GET INTO NURSING!
don't do it. I feel brutalized by the experience.
Nursing is an unforgiving field.
#1 Nurses eat their own. I have never been in a field where women are so vicious to each other.
#2 Your employer will put you in impossible situations, like giving your too many patients to be safe and then blame you if you can't handle it. Don't ever look to management to back you up or care about happens to you.
#3 Patients will treat you very disrespectfully. Ever notice the way nurses are portrayed in movies, greeting cards, stories? We are either Nurses Ratched or Nurse ****.
#4 Insulting pay for the responsibility you have.
There are alot more reasons. Don't get stuck in a profession that will leave you burned out, emotionally and physically
damaged and last but not least, broke.
