    We all have those days when working at BurgerKing sounds glamerous compared to what we endure each day. Nurses are a special breed- the most caring and supportive bunch around. But how else can we deal with all we have to without complaining once in awhile?

    Yes- we are overworked and under appreciated. The money sucks, and the stress is horrendeous. Find we one person in any field who doesn't feel that way at one point or another.

    All in all- we are nurses for a reason-each and every one of us. Call it a duty or a calling, but we are who we are for a reason. Nursing is in our blood-it's who we are. And not many of us who stay nurses would be satisfied doing anything else.

    And the end of the day, I can say with a tired smile on my face, I made a difference. What else matters?

    Well, I don't hate nursing. I have always wanted to be a nurse. I just don't like how we nurses are being treated. Then again, I have been on both sides. There are downfalls to almost everywhere else you work.

    We vent because it helps us. Our spouces don't necessarily want to hear about what is going on nor do they really understand why things upset us so much. This site gives us a chance to get it off our chests. We can make friends here. Most everyone here understands our rants.

    Please don't use the negative comments to make your decision. As one poster stated, we learn from each other. Perhaps in one situation, we can be alert or aware of something because we saw it here and may be able to handle the situation differently.
