I had a nurse tell me
"Don't enter nursing, get out while you can"
I thought, " wait until I graduate, i'll be happy to take your job"
It is what is within you. There's a lot of little issues, some people let it get to them, others do not.
I am more a believer of this (when it comes to working as a nurse- I am a student though)
1) Did any of my patients die during the shift?
2) Did they die because of me?
3) Did I do anything (or not do anything) that caused harm to my patients?
4) Did I advocate, listen, and help my patients in a reasonable way?
Is there a lot of nonsense with hospitals and the increasing corporate like management? Certainly. I am not here for the management, I am here for the patients.
