Quote from Allison007
Wow! It seems like everyone hates their jobs/bosses/co-workers/patients. No one gets paid, everyone is exhausted, drained, burnt out, and miserable. Suddenly, nursing seems like the worst job on the planet.
SO...can anyone tell me something they actually like about nursing?
Please allow me to echo Esme12's welcome, Allison007!
Well, I love hating my job/bosses/coworkers/patients, enjoy being underpaid,exhausted, burned out, and miserable.
I really like my job, love some of my coworkers, and most of the people I serve. Pay is great and predominately doing art in my off time, I believe working as a nurse balances out my life.
AN.com has been a catalyst in accelerating my interest in nursing. I'm relatively sure others concur.
As far as the complaints, know this: We all need our place to vent and deal with stressors so many find empathetic souls here on AN.com to assist them in dealing with their feelings. Though outwardly negative, positive products can result.
I choose to deal with my stress through, among other things, art, exercise, humor, journaling, and loved ones.
Don't allow your excitement to be contingent on what others do or say, Allison007. Nursing is
an exciting and fulfilling field to work in. But, like anything else, it is what you make it.
The best to you, Allison007!
