I've been a nurse for over a year now. At first I thought it was being new that other nurses abused me. Now I know that it's because they are just ********. I am to the point of leaving nursing all together. There are a million jobs in this state and I've tried three of them in one year and its all the same. Nurses eat nurses. Why??
I love my patients truly and it's a great day when I know I've made a difference for them. So why is it that I can be on cloud 9 because I did something great for a patient and then five minutes later the other nurses have made me feel insignificant?
Once every 3 to 4 weeks where I use to work, the rotation would come up that it was all male nurses on the unit. This was the one night that I looked foward to the most. We all got along and had fun all night. But then the next night would role around and there might be me and one other guy and then it was back to same old crapp. Do woman nurses hate male nurse? Should I just quit nursing? I really dont know what to do anymore. I have tried so hard to be nice and caring not only for my patients but for co-workers also. It gets me nowhere. They always ask me to cover their shift for them on my nights off and I have every time. But, when I ask them to it for me, no one ever has. So, last night was the first time that I have ever said NO. Now that nurse wont speak to me. AAHHHHHHH!!!! What do I do?????
like a bar is any cleaner? Probably have higher chances of getting Hep C sitting at a bar than you do working in a hospital.
Well, it really depends. Sometimes those headaches turn into a ruptured aneurysm.
The longer you are a nurse, the less compassionate you will be. We all get burned out, and we are only human. You don't need compassion to do the job, but you need to have common sense and be smart enough to do the job. You don't need to be compassionate to know that a patient needs pain meds or that a patient needs to be turned or that a levophed gtts needs to be started. Nursing education is kinda a joke, which emphasizes on caring and compassion; because it doesn't teach you real world application and you learn how to think once you have a job.
I wonder how many dirty looks you guys get when you walk into a place...
My answer is still the same as it was a year ago when I responded to this post...nursing still sucks, and it's just gonna suck even more.
