My mother was sick in the hopsital for a week.
When she got better, i asked her how did the nurses act towards her; if they seemed stressed out, frustrated or burnt out from their job.
She said that all the RNs seemed fine. They were smiling and didn't seem like they hated their job. They were very busy but it didn't affect their attitudes, they were pleasant at least to her. She even said that her RN gave her a hug before she left.
From reading allnurses.com, the posts had me thinking that most RNs hated their jobs, and that they were always running around with a scowl on their face from being overworked and underpaid. It made me question whether I wanted to be a nurse from all the complaining on here.
