hello, i wanted to let you know that there are nurses in seattle who love their careers. i graduated last year from seattle u and was offered a position at group health in their rn residency program six months later. i love my job on the oncology unit. most people give me that look of (oh oncology nursing, how sad), which i don’t understand why. many cancers are not death sentences anymore. i may just be lucky, but i’m having a blast working with the other nurses and the physicians. i have not gone home and cried myself to sleep. i feel so supported and have never felt abandoned by my preceptors. you should go back into nursing! i love being a nurse; it is so rewarding and is a respected profession. i had one man approach me on the bus last month to thank me for saving lives. the little things make me so proud to be an rn.
