Seriously, where else but in nursing is their such guilt and angst about taking a measly 30 minute lunch during a twelve hour shift? I am a nurse-not a martyr. What do any of us have to gain by making ourselves sick, getting UTI's, becoming dehydrated, and getting burned out because we buy into the notion that somehow it is impossible for us to get our allowed breaks and lunch? It is not impossible, we need to stick up for ourselves even if that means calling the supervisor, the unit manager or whoever to get what is not just deserved, but what is healthy for our bodies. Nuff said.
