    To the person who said they worked surgery...depending where you work, there are shifts you will be covered in poo and other bodily fluids working the OR. Dealing with these aspects is the less enjoyable part of nursing. However, we are helping someone and providing comfort. Isn't that why we went into nursing in the first place? It's all part of the job.

    I just had to add

    I went into nursing at the tender age of 45. I'd never been around seniors and had no clue about dementia. During my first semester we did our clinicals in a long term care facility. I swore I'd never work geriatrics after that experience.

    Look at me now....I supervise homecare aids in a senior's lodge. The average age of my clients is 85. I love geriatrics.

    So keep an open mind about nursing.

    I also worked in the OR straight of school. I was never covered in poop.Lots of blood but no poop. I even had endoscopy an there was surprisingly little poop. Then I went to Case Management where I never touch patients, it's all done over the phone. It's possible.
