I would like to become a nurse, but I don't believe in blood transfusions, getting them or giving them. That said I would never tell anyone not to get one, or say anything against the doctors order, I believe it is a personnal choice but I don't want to have to give them. I'm in nursing school now. Do you or anyone you know have this issue and if so how do they deal with it and what areas or floors can they work on? I know oncology and ortho are poor choices. I was hoping for a job where It wouldn't come up often and if it did I could get the supervisor or another nurse to do that. while I did all other care.
There are so many areas of nursing a person can pursue. Do not let not wanting to give blood stop you from being a nurse, just find a field that does not give blood transfusions. If need be you can ask another nurse to give it for you and you monitor the patient.
