i wondered if this is true. my name is jen, i'm new here. i'm not a nurse but am thinking about becoming one. i'm currently an huc/secretary in the nicu and have had some interests in pursuing nursing. i have a friend who is a cna and while i was walking and talking with her yesterday she told me not to become a nurse because after a few years you just don't care anymore. don't care about your patients and things will start to lose feeling. now, i'm not going to go make any decisions based on what she just told me, but i did wonder if there was any truth to that. after so long, does everything just blend together? thanks in advance.
