I might be out of my mind but the more i read & the more i talk to my co-workers & friends the more i sense trends with Nurses!
#1- Nurses tend to be involved with law enforcement officers in one form or another?
( i know i am & 80% of my friends who are nurses have dated or are married to law enforcement)
#2- OCD is a common trait among nurses?
(I think our jobs demand perfection so we develop that trait over the years! )
#3- Addiction is one of the horrible realities of nursing if you arent careful?
(i have been blessed not to have fallen victim to this but I know its a big big issues with Doctors & Nurses alike, I teach Drug awareness at the Correctional & Police Academy)
#4- Nurses tend to be work-a-holics?
( i think this goes with the OCD issue, our job isnt done until its done)
#5- Nursing is challenging no matter how many years you have under your belt & typically burn out comes more often the longer you stay in the career?
( i know i have to step out every 3 yrs for a long vacation in the islands or i would be insane by now)
#6- Eating Disorders seem to be endless with nurses?
( i know i have suffered myself from this & have read in depth on this board that it still exists throughout the nursing community, why do we fall pray to this?)
What are some other traits or similarities that you have noticed about Nurses ?? I would love to hear from you!! :typing
