I feel like they should change the title of this site to "reasons why my job sucks" - page 10

People on here need to realize that when you complain on here (and for some that all those individuals do) it really dissuades us new grads from continuing into the profession. First and most obvious... Read More

    If new grads or students are relying on someone else's opinion as to whether or not they are/did make the right choice or how they should feel about their job.......get counseling. Be your own person....don't rely on strangers opinions or attitudes to guide yours. Oh, my last job sucked. My new job rocks.

    I did not realize that people had to stop pursuing their dreams or their education to provide you with job stability. I am a new nurse and I worked my butt off to get to where I am and I am sorry if there are many more of us to replace you.
    (chuckle, chuckle) You got THAT from my message? Do you have poor reading comprehension or are you deliberately misrepresenting what Isaid?

    How unbelievably, offensively rude. And you know what? I don't care what you think. When you became a nurse, you took on the role as teacher and role model for all nurses following you. THAT is the REALITY. Whether you like it or not, YOU are our teacher. You better hope to hell we new grads don't have nurses like you who we are trying to look up to when YOU are the patient in the hospital. I love learning from experienced nurses. Guess what? You better care how you are teaching us. WE are the future experienced nurses taking care of your kids. I never disrespected experienced nurses til I became a part if this website and saw how much we new grads are despised by so many of you. Its like "how dare anyone after us become a nurse and try to learn." Yeah, the NERVE of us.
    Well one must care what we think, else one would not come here seeking whatever it is one is seeking. I did NOT become a nurse to be a role model or a teacher of all nurses following me. That is NOT reality. Ones' parents are one's role models and teachers. That is what they sign up for when they have kids. One's clincal instructors are ones' teachers. That is what they do for a living. One's preceptor watches over to make sure no one gets maimed, killed or otherwise is breathing when the day is done--once professors and clinical instructors teach what one needs to know. And IF one is applying character and practice on what is read on a message board, (hence the "hope you are never our patient" comment) then perhaps it should be thought about again-- disrespect based on what you read here? Seriously? Really think on that one, as it seems to be offensive and rude, the very thing that is coming across as so "distasteful" And further, if responses are read before reacting, various comments are usually aimed at someone's attitude of knowing it ALL as a new grad, or vents that end with "good" excuses on why one makes a mistake as a new grad, as opposed to the general "new grad" status. The expectation is that you learn in school and in clinicals. In the working world is where you APPLY what you have ALREADY learned. And with EXPERIENCE you do it better. The REALITY is that it doesn't always come easy, cheap, or each day is met with a glitter parade. We are talking about patient's lives, not some canibalistic mean old bat nurse who perhaps doesn't think one needs a medal each time one critically thinks successfully. Honestly, the world doesn't revolve around one person.

    You probably should've just asked that. The way you worded your original post is just begging for attack. This isn't a forum for new nurses, it includes new nurses but isn't all about that. Why would anyone refrain from talking about how they feel because it may make someone think they chose the wrong profession? Is it better if they pretend they like all aspects when in reality half the time they leave feeling like they got hit by a truck? You will find may positive stories here too. The reality is most new nurses and students have no clue what it's really like. ( Myself included) Nursing school is nothing like the real world."No day but today"
    Not even the uniforms!!! LOL!!!!

    Nursing is like being on a teeter totter. Some days you are up in the air and other days you fall smartly on your ass, only to go back up again.

    I have loved nursing and I have hated nursing. Healthcare is the only job I have done. I started at age 18 as a CNA and worked up the ranks. I did end up being burned out and left nursing for close to 5 yrs. Now I'm back and in full force. I love my job, and I am focused on a career. I'm proud to call myself a nurse. I have finally come full circle.

    As for grads, or students. I love them. I want them to teach them survival skills in nursing. I don't want them to go through what I did.

    Nobody is saying don't pursue your dreams. We're just saying that we don't NEED you to replace us. Society might eventually need you. Someday I might need a nurse. But I'll go without a nurse rather than have one that's scared away by some vents on a message board. Or that's going to whine because they lack reading comprehension. Excuse me if I don't go around begging people to become nurses so that hospitals will have a ready supply of cheap replacements that they can threaten me with and make my working environment even worse than it already is. I'm actually considered nice to new grads. But some of the ones that post here with their grand sense of entitlement would not be welcomed into my workplace, by ANY of us.

    You are being hyperbolic. I don't care to be your teacher, I didn't sign up for that. You hired nurse educators to teach you in school, and your employers assigned preceptors to you in the work place. I have declined offers for both those opporunities because I do not have an interest or talent for teaching. I am a talented clinician, however, and you may or may not look up to me as a role model, that's up to you. But I owe you nothing. I don't despise new graduates. I am not interested enough in them to take the time to either love them or despise them. I'm far too busy. Calm yourself and move on. It isn't all about you. In fact, it has nothing to do with you. Nursing is a terrible job even without your terrible attitude, lol.
