The thing I like most about nursing is dealing with the patients and families. This is an area where I've always excelled - it's a challenge sometimes to find a way to get thru to some people. Some people respond to humor, some to being solicitous, some to being dead serious. Some people want to be educated about everything, some just don't want to deal with the details.
At the LTCF where I work now, I've developed a good relationship with a few of the residents, that the rest of the staff complain about - and I can't understand why they complain about them. I've never observed the behaviors that the others say they exhibit. Yes, they have their little quirks, but don't we all, as humans?
The thing I HATE, HATE, HATE is the ever increasing amount of paperwork!!
