Well buddy,

Sometime, somewhere, you're gonna have to do it.

You will do it as a student. When you're an RN, it all depends on how much help you have. Yes generally speaking, CNAs have this as a main duty. But, if you are down an assist or two, you are gonna have to pitch in. If your CNA is busy with doing the same for two other of your patients, you will not leave a patient to sit "in it" -- you will do it. If you are an ICU nurse that is all gonna be your deal for the most part in many hospitals, although you might need help in positioning and speed for the patient's tolerance sake.

You're gonna have to do it.

I can't deal with poo either, but I'm not going to avoid that task.

What is it? The sight or smell?

The smell is what gets me and I just put Vick's under my nose, then I'm fine.

If it's the sight, then I can't give you advice.

Every Nurse I work with has something that grosses them out, Poo, snot, vomit etc. They all work through it when they have to. It also depends on where in Nursing you end up. ICU, Med/Surg, Nursing homes = POO

ED, Home health, surgical = No POO
