    Once you actually become an RN you join a secret order.
    A private club where behind the scenes, where no one talks about,
    ...You get free cookies

    You are able to talk about the most disgusting things at lunch with your colleagues and no one gets offended!

    Seriously, watching a patient go from almost death's door to walking out the hospital door OR providing the environment and support to allow a patient to die peacefully and with dignity.

    Walking into a room and hearing a patient or the family of the patient say " there is my favorite nurse"

    When that happens, I am authentically happy that they are happy

    I love talking to the patients, assessing, listening to how much they know about their body. Building a rapore with my patients. Coding someone, then seeing them walk back into the hospital, with very little deficits. pretty amazing.

    I just got off an AWFUL shift, so my answer is... NOTHING. Nursing is making me hate people.
