All of the experienced nurses on here really seem to hate their job, and it is disheartening.
Students will express concern over the severity of certain clinicals, and so many people say we've signed up for the wrong career, or we need to get over it. We're students, we aren't nurses yet. Everyone also always assumes we will be a staff nurse in a hospital. What if we're a nurse in a doctor's office, or clinic? What is we were doing administrative duties, or want to be a school nurse?
And honestly, twelve hour shifts aren't the worst things in the world. I think half these nurses who complain so much probably never had another job before nursing. Many jobs can require 15 hour shifts with no breaks.
I just think nurses who post in the nursing student forums should be a little more supportive.
