When I was in fourth grade I wanted to be a pilot, a firefighter, or an archeologist like Indiana Jones. 20 years later I'm waiting on an Enema to take effect so I can rush in with the bedpan- so I guess in some ways I'm a superhero.
I wouldn't go back an pop that fourth grader's bubble though, but I think it would make waiting easier, eh?

I definitely share this sentiment (i.e. emotional reward of nursing). Pt's ask me all the time about how 'rewarding' it si to be a nurse. I have decided that the pefect answer is "its tough, but rewarding.' That tends to make them smile and be more patient with me when I can't do things fast as they like. Everyone wins! They get to romantize bedside nursing, and I buy a little more time for my stressed self.
Guess they don't want to hear how I am on burnout street every other day with crazy system abusing pt's (i.e. Frequent Flyers with LONG hangovers'). But I can't blame em, there is plently of negativity around, won't make them happy to have me coming and bursting their bubble about nursing.
