I have been reading so many threads lately and it seems everyone hates nursing and their career choice. I would think it is very discouraging to read that over and over and am beginning to think that just like when you are working with a group of negative people your positive thoughts diminish soooooo....
I am not saying I love every aspect of my job however after reading alot of the recent posts I can say I count my blessings that I have the job that I do have. I know things could be different with management, schedule and general work environment to make things better at times however I do believe that the grass isnt always greener on the other side so to speak and I feel that ask anyone in any profession and they will also feel they have it rough.
In general I feel very appreciated by the patients and their families, love my co-workers, management does listen on a individual basis and I am very well paid for my time. I think some other positive thoughts needs to be expressed in order to pick up the good aspects of nursing because like I said earlier when you are surrounded by negativity then the positive feelings diminish.
