    Nursing Is No Longer Worth It

    I totally agree! From the time my children were little, I told them never choose nursing. They didn't. I now have grandchildren and have told all of them to avoid this ****** job. I wish someone had encouraged me to choose a different path. The only positive side is the weekly travel pay that shows up in my account. Everything else about this job sucks.

    I don’t want to work extra!

    I don't feel staffing issues are my problem to deal with. Management gets paid big bucks and bonuses to figure those things out. I just say, "no, I can't work extra." No apologies and no feeling bad about using the word no.
  3. I have zero sympathy for hospitals and their staffing problems. They have treated nurses like *** for decades, low pay, mandatory OT, poor benefits, unsafe staffing, the list could go on. I'm over the, "it's a calling" mentality. Nursing a job that we should be compensated well for. I'm glad that nurses, including me, are finally fed up with the abuse and have and are leaving regular staff jobs behind for agency work, where we are paid what we are worth. Maybe, it will open the blind eyes of management and force them to revisit their abuse of nurses and do better. If it doesn't, then they can suffer the consequences of losing fed up staff.

    How many unvaccinated coworkers are you aware of?

    I'm vaccinated by choice. I don't believe any vaccine should be mandatory. I also could care less about whether my coworker is vaccinated or not. What they choose to do or not do is no concern of mine.
  5. I have always viewed the ignorance of others as job security for Healthcare professionals.

    Yes, I'm Vaxxed But...

    I totally agree. I chose to be vaccinated. I should also be free to choose to decline a vaccine. I decline a flu vaccine every year. I mind my own business and do what I choose for myself. I could care less if my coworkers are vaccinated or not.
  7. Heck yes! We have to put ourselves first, God knows our employers don't care. They'll work you till you fall over and kick you when you can't get up. No guilt here for mental health days.

    How to Stop the Mass Nursing Exodus?

    I doubt that hospitals will hire anymore staff, they can't even pay a decent wage to nurses and it might result in CEOs losing their bonuses.

    Share Policies That Have Not Saved One Life

    LOL, who's got time for care plan nonsense? Some facilities have sheets of paper in patient rooms to initial to prove that staff were in the room each hour. No time alloted for that nonsense either, same with the whiteboards. Bedside shift reports are useless as well.

    Four 12s in a row?!?! 😭😭

    Nope, I refuse to work 3 in a row, unless I do that to myself. I'd call off on day 2 or 3 if that was my schedule.

    COVID Immunized Guilt

    Have you worked during the pandemic? Haven't you noticed the way healthcare providers have been treated thoughout this pandemic? We have had to work with staffing shortages, reused PPE and being excluded from benefits if we become ill with Covid. We are expendable commodities to our employers. I have zero guilt about being ahead of anyone else. None.
