I am a new grad and just got hired in a level one trauma center and I work in trauma ICU. I feel like my life has a lot of similarities to the show.... I live with two girls and the trauma team likes to go out (on our days off) a lot. It's kind of like big fraternity, everyone is super close and likes to have a good time
we give awesome care to our patients and really live and breath trauma medicine! Just wondering if y'all have similar experiences?
Let's not perpetuate the Grey's Anatomy myth of nursing.
Professional cohesiveness is one thing. Friendships and dating relationships that develop out of a working situation are quite another and should be handled with care, not likened to a TV show that equates nurses with uneducated handmaidens.
The group I went to my first duty station with was a tight-knit little bunch. We learned a lot together, hung out after hours, and several of us were roommates. But we were soldiers, nurses, and professionals above all. At the end of the day, that's what mattered.
