I appreciate your reply but again I disagree.
Unfortunately, I am not a missionary and I have too many other responsibilities that prevent me from giving every aspect of my life to nursing as appararently you do. (By the way do you get paid for practicing nursing?)
But maybe you are right though and maybe I should quit nursing (again) just like the other nurses that Nancy points out are leaving nursing in droves...They must not be able to give every ounce of their lives either - How uterly inconsiderate!
Maybe someday you may change your mind.
No, not about my point of view but about me being your nurse - after all, since I am not called as you must be to the divinity of nursing then I must not be worthy enough to be your nurse either. And that's fine with me...
I have 13 years worth of nursing experience in ER/Trauma and ICU. I'm BLS, ACLS, PALS, ATLS and CEN certified. I have worked hundreds of codes, saved quite a few lives, applied thousands of bandaids, given thousands of injections, started countless IV's, held the hands of and prayed with many dying patients, told their families that a loved one had passed away, disagreed with physicians directly and as a result prevented fatal mistakes, etc. etc. etc...But hey, me and the rest of the drove will get out of your way since we aren't called like you and aren't as caring as you.
(Even with all my experience and certifications, when I get to the end of the checkout line they all laugh when I try to pay with the "I CARE" card.)
As a result of your last post, I can only assume that when it comes to bringing down morale that you are "Head" nurse in that field as well.
In conclusion I think you have said it best yourself with the ironic quote at the end of all your posts: "IF EVERYONE AGREED WITH ME..."
How appropo for you.
