Neither. I got accepted into a direct entry nursing program at University of Evansville.

Assuming you will be taking courses on campus, after a few months of meeting new people in new places, and clinicals, I'd like to see if your outlook on people changes any.

Yeah, I could never talk to you guys in person or you all would all like to kill me. It's actually easier to express myself on the internet and that's why I like ranting.

Just remember that nobody cares what you think because it's not about you. They're all more concerned with their own thoughts and feelings. So think what you want, but do what you have to do to earn a paycheck. The earth will keep spinning.

Please do.

As I mentioned, this profession broke me of my shyness. I can whip up a conversation with anyone, anywhere now (although I typically don't).

Like nursing isn't hard enough these days before layering on incompatible personality traits.

It's good that you're going to talk to someone in mental health about it. I think you should also discuss why you're considering a people profession (look there aren't too many back lab positions, most require patience and tolerance of people even away from the bedside) when you have minimal tolerance or regard for people and their common annoyances.

This is the age of "Patient/Family Centered Care." You will see families on the night shift -- and probably a WHOLE lot more drama than the day shift sees!

This is truth!

I worked NICU for many years long ago. I worked nights and rarely interacted with families.

Now they have gone so far as to make all NICU rooms private so the families can move in and never leave! (Admittedly great for families and exactly what I would want if it were my child, but there is now no "family free" shift to speak of anymore.)

I have nothing against newborns, babies, or children. So I may just try to get myself into that specialty.And isn't the families being there hard to deal with?

The newborns, babies, and children are never the problem. It's the parents and families that come with them that are the problems!

That is so wrong on so many levels. Why should I have to pledge to an entity?

So let's pretend you actually care for a moment.

Florence nightingale is the founder of modern nursing basically.

We quote that we "solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly to pass my life in purity and to practise my profession faithfully." BECAUSE nursing is a healing practice. We don't just shove pills down people's throats, start IVs and have sex with doctors like in the soap operas. We let love guide our practice. We let our hearts and guts react when needed, we understand that God is above all, and ultimately it is up to Him to determine if our patients live or die. Even the most appropriate medical care can be foiled but some unknown reason.

You must accept this, or you will most likely fail as a nurse.

It's true some may use the introverted personality to become the best nurse, ever. But this is hardly ever the case. If you are perceived as the callus nurse, U won't be a friend to management.

I've seen other nurses run people like u off the job, using your bad social skills against U to seem incompetent.

Trust me when I tell u, to search your heart and soul and make sure nursing is what God is leading you to. You will most likely have to fight for the right to be respected, if u don't have good social skills.

Plus there's schools sn clinical a to get through, and trust me, professors pick the runt of the litter and will attempt to fail them, if ur the runt, good luck.

If your trolling, shame on you. I (and most everyone here) understand that we must practice faithfully.

Yes I work at a catholic hospital, but even with my rant; guess what? I don't go to church. My faith lies in My HEART so don't tell me ur not Christian. You are HUMAN and I think u missed the most fundamental gene: empathy.
