Get to the crux of the matter in 50 words or less...

There is a possibility that nurses are less respected but hold an extremely important value to the industry. There is also a shortage of staffing.

Dare I say documentation is the area of my undoing. Wish I had a paid hired hand to take notes during my day so I could just do my Job.
I know, I know you'll say: "Well, callacold you simply don't get it!!! We document to save our skins when we get in front of a judge and plead our case, if you did not record it, it did not happen!" I say, most of this documentation is checking off boxes, pulling up this window and completing the next nurse joint commission required task == worthless time consuming venture. I only love charting when I have the time to and that is rare indeed. Arrg!
God help me, I think I went past the 50 word limit!
PS I do love this work, especially when you have those moments of patient gratitude or MD RN teamwork acknowledged by MD or family members wishing you'd come back tomorrow (the day you have off)...all good in my book.
