    God forbid that a nurse should ask for 10 minutes to regroup at a moment when she is overwhelmed.The fact that this is even a question demonstrates just how powerless we can become on tbe workplace.There is nothing wrong with taking ten minutess to get organized as long as no harm came to any patient.

    "No." was the only right answer, despite the family's feelings. I also doubt the patient's question was serious to start out with. It's more likely that he was amusing himself ...or possibly expressing frustration with the futility of some aspects of his treatment.

    A nurse can't be "annoyed"? I confess to regular feelings of being put out, annoyed, peeved, ticked etc as well as being joyful, grateful, sad, and all the other emotions that make us human.
    What is so wrong with a nurse focusing on her own emotional needs and pondering important questions after work?

    Quote from sarahnp103
    I want to become a psychiatric nurse practitioner however I don't think R.N. duties would give me experience that would help me in that career ex: giving insulin, giving pills, helping patients brush teeth. The two career paths I could take is either getting a BA not in nursing and then doing an accelerated MSN program in which I won't have to be an R.N. or I can get a BSN, be a nurse and then pursue my MSN. Although I would really love to avoid being a nurse beforehand in what ways would being a nurse beforehand help in a NP career, specifically psychiatric?
    Is that seriously what you think we do? If so you have absolutely no idea what nursing is all about and frankly I find your viewpoint to be insulting.
