Yes, it's disrespectful and demeaning. But realistically, when I used to work full time and every shift I saw different patients, sometimes I had a hard time remembering names. So, I would say "honey" instead of risking calling Mrs. Smith Mrs. Jones. And folks who may be sundowning a bit may not respond well to Mr. or Mrs. or Miss.
So this is a power and control issue and yes, this is a bigger issue than just going to nursing school. Your husband may be verbally and emotionally abusive. This isn't just nursing school, this is the rest of your life.
What could you have done differently? Considered alcohol withdrawal in your differential. Big missed diagnosis by the doc.
"Night shift is hard on the body and mind. You should be taking care of yourself.
If boyfriend does not understand that.. you need to rest and recharge, you need a new boyfriend."
Totally agree with this. And if he never gets it, certainly don't marry him.

"At some point, many of us dream of working from home, coffee cup in hand, in a hoodie and yoga pants. Fortunately, there really are many opportunities."
As a matter of fact, this is exactly what I do. I never would have dreamed this 41 years ago when I became an RN. Fast forward to 4 years ago, I received an e-mail from LinkedIn and this job ad caught my eye "Nurse practitioners, work from home in your pajamas!" As I thought to myself, "Yeah, right" I clicked on the ad and discovered it was from a major health provider in my area and it was perfect for me. I was hired and have been working for this employer for 3 years.
I do online convenience care exclusively from home by computer. I diagnose common conditions, prescribe meds when necessary and refer if it's not a condition we treat. I am licensed as an RN and NP in 12 states. Since I live in MN, I never worry about the weather. I work per diem and pretty much work when and how much I want. I plan to hang on to this job until I retire.
We have great comeraderie. We maintain a chat open with our co-workers during our shifts for consulting with each other, asking questions, and coordinating with the tech staff.
