Getting used to it

  1. 0
    Question to all nurses out there! I am in nursing school and I can deal with poop any day but I am not used to vomit yet. Anyone else in my place? Will it just take time for me to get used to seeing?

    Hi,

    Yes, probably...that being said we all have our area that may still gross us out! Mine is respiratory mucous, phlegm etc...eeeww BUT you gotta do what ya gotta do!

    For me, I know most people are already upset that we, as nurses, are having to deal with all there "ooops, and accidents" .
    Rarely have I had someone not been appreciative and for me, dignity is key, for both parties.

    I work in a specialized wound clinic and see really nasty stuff- the smell can be....really intense, and I have had to take some breathers!!! It gets easier...my patients are mostly sweethearts who are 100% cognitive as well....

    Good luck with school; keep us posted

    Regards,
