Go .... Into the profession in the first place...
Sorry. I have had a month or two of a few choice coworkers that do "Too much critical thinking" to look at their patients as people or address family concerns. Makes me crazy!

Things I experience in a shift:
Never get to sit down until I clock out.
Running to pass meds on time,to answer the phone and call lights.
Smiling at my residents and coworkers.
I love and hate this place.
Need more staff and more time to get everything done.
Go home feeling exhausted, guilty for not doing more, pleased about what I did to make a residents life a little better.

Understanding I know very little but the basics
Realizing what a honor it can be to care
Seeking some way to regain my lost sanity
Induring myself to wonderful preceptors
Nervous about having a "real" career
Going to give it all I got and kick butt!
