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
