Hi everyone, I'm new here. I'm not a nurse, but I'm thinking about going to school to become one. I'm pretty concerned about all of the nursing-hate I'm finding online though. Like, the site, aboutmyjob for example. It lists story after story about people, usually nurses, that absolutely hate their job. All I hear about on that site mostly is about how terrible it is, how the work loads are astronomical, how you get blamed for everything, how nasty co-workers are...
Is this really the general opinion of the nursing field as a whole? That nursing is a horrible horrible profession to be avoided at all costs? Some of the people on that site make it out to be like their life's greatest mistake. I'm really hoping that there's some jobs out there that aren't total nightmares. I'm not talking about low stress or not dealing with problems. I just mean, I would like to know if there's jobs out there that are tolerable, and give at least a little back in terms of feeling like you're helping people.
Thanks for any comments! I'm honestly hoping most of the people on that first site were just having a really crappy day and decided to rant, and that their careers aren't really horrible 24/7.
