I think that people are going into nursing for the wrong reasons. I think that it has become only for the money not for the satisfaction of taking care of a patient. Not for the reward of having a patient say thank you and you can walk away feeling like you did your best. If anyone is going into nursing for the money, do us all a favor and don't. Grumpy nurses give us that care a bad reputation.
The only holiday I cared about working was Christmas. The others I could deal with, and my family understood. I could usually find someone who wanted to party on New Years eve/day that was willing to work Christmas eve/day in exchange. Now that I'm working in a hospital with alot of nurses with young kids, who knows how it'll pan out. But, I can honestly say when my kids were small I had it made. It's time for me to pay it forward now that my kids are grown.
I will throw this in. When I was working at the hospital, I'm not anymore now Im a senior nursing student, I started childless and I did work every single holiday. I had my firstborn shortly after and I was able to get most holidays off. Now when I start working as a nurse I am a bit worried because my husband is a paramedic and works a lot of holidays and it is important to me to have at least one of us there, our guys are still little. My point is before I had kids and all my co-workers had babies and toddlers and wanted holidays off it never offended me, holidays are for kids mostly.
I meant I didn't need all of the negativity.
