How do You Know?
- 0Feb 1, '07 by weirdRNI love Nursing. I really do. I love caring for patients. I work in long term care. I seldom see them get better or go home, but I get to know them. The wonderful people who used to be just like you and me, who aren't anymore.
I hate paper work and stand-up. Hate the pettiness and back stabbing and the small town high school gossip.
How do you know it is time to really move on?
- 0Feb 1, '07 by oramar GuideBest I can say is that when a person is starting to ask this questions it is obvious that it is time to do some soul searching and reassessing. That is not necessary a bad thing, it is a fact of life that we all reach these places in our personal and professional life and it is OK.
- 0Feb 2, '07 by Nurse Crystali am a relatively new nurse (3.5 years) and i have noticed the increased tension and pettiness in the nursing field. i think this is partly due to understaffing and overstressed workers.
i have switched jobs due to the pettiness which also includede my manager. it was a really hard decision for me to finally leave but i did it and i am glad i made the decision. i think once we get in that comfort zone it is hard for us to think of doing anything else. good luck to you and god bless!
