Ya know, this is a hard question. I do love what I do, I enjoy going to work each shift. I love the codes, the trauma's, the pts that touch your heart.. I love helping those that can't so it themselves. Would I go into nursing if I had a second chance ?? Yep, I would. I think the good parts of nursing out weighs the bad and working nights helps to keep me away from all the upper management BS
I dislike the politics of nursing, management that has no idea, new policies that make no sense, the customer service BS, the argument we are highly trained "professionals" but treated like regular laborers. Working long shifts with few bathroom breaks, hardly time to eat etc.. P
Please understand we come here to vent, share and get support. I have many more great/good shifts vs the bad ones.
I think most of the negative posts come from new grads venting, questioning their ability, etc while learning their way, I was there once and it sucked
The learning curve for a new nurse is steep, scary, and not all places nurture new grads like they should.
Wishing you the best in what ever you decide
