    Definitely not a calling here. I was wait listed for a dental hygiene program and asked myself what can I do with all these science credits. Immediately was accepted into an ADN program. Learned I detested floor nursing so immediately enrolled in a RN-BSN program. Convinced I had zero desire to move up in a hospital role. Spent 4 years completing a BSN to DNP program. I can't say that I love or am passionate about being an FNP. I make the most money I've ever made in a southern low paying state. I work 8-5 with rarely a weekend rotation. No more working holidays either. Definite increase in quality of life.

    Due to an unforeseen set back I will now graduate May 2016. I had to create a whole new capstone project. So it is taking me 4 years and out of the 40 people that began cohort 1 of this program only 6 or 7 are actually graduating this May. A large portion of us are graduating next May for various reasons. While the set back hurts nothing will keep me from graduating with 4 kids all looking to me as an example.

    The truth is people at work aren't your friends. They are acquaintances that you work with for 12 hours. When you go home they don't come with you. Co-workers are supposed to be team members during that 12 hour shift working together to provide better patient care. They aren't there to have your back or ensure that you love your job. People place too much weight on what a co-worker is. As long as they take care of their patients, help when they are able, & show up at a code who cares how quickly they move up? I don't because I'm there to pay my bills not worry about how someone else pays theirs. Karma always catches up. It's only a matter of time before that nurse feels like she can trust the wrong co-worker. Then she will be the one talking about the knife in her back. Keep work at work and your life outside of that.

    I tell my children if they are interested in healthcare to be anything but the nurse. Pharmacist, PT, OT, PA, Physician, Respiratory, or whatever else. Nurses work long hours with little to no breaks or respect, often short staffed, and the buck ends with them. Ice not cold enough? Nurse's fault. 602 did not get Dilaudid exactly 2 hrs from last dose? Nurse's fault. No CNAs today so patients were in filth longer? Nurse's fault. The nurse is at the bottom of the hill with arms wide open and we all know what rolls downhill. I graduate with my DNP in May because I was so fed up with patient satisfaction & the Burger King drive thru mentality.

    Quote from Jedrnurse
    Seems like the tone is:

    1. don't give unsolicited nursing advice (though nurses deal with wounds more than pharmacists, the pharmacist was working and the nurse was not)
    2. the pharmacist was defensive and reacted as such (personally I would classify that behavior as putz-ish)

    On another note, the winter olympics will be held in Hell the day I address a pharmacist as "Doctor."
    Just a note most pharmacists are PharmDs not PhDs. My husband has been one for 13 years. While he doesn't use the title he definitely earned it. There are nurses now being called Dr. and we should extend the same courtesy those other healthcare team members if they desire it.

    In 2009, I had a job lined up prior to graduation in southwest VA. The next year in 2010 the graduating nurses couldn't find a job for 6 or more months. I was truly fortunate that there was still such a nerd when I finished.
