Ive been a nurse for only 2 years and yes there is not a lot of respect for nurses. A lot of people think of us as maids or servers. Just the other day I got so mad because this visitor of one my patients was in the room, I was walking by and he starts yelling HEY!, HEY! I am like are you talking to me???? he is like when is his breathing treatment going to be over?? I am like sir, my name is Pam and I am HIS NURSE and I will call my respiratory therapist ok? GOSH!! I hate the way how people treat their doctors like God and their nurses like sh....
I think we should be called Nurse Pam just by that it gives more respect to our profession.
About the scrubs
, I like the colors and prints, as long as they are clean and neat. APpearance mean a lot. I would not go back to the white dresses, that is old school and I think uncomfortable.
I love nursing, but I wish society will gives us the respect we deserve and oh yeah, the Money too!!!!!
