    Once you actually become an RN you join a secret order.

    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.
