:yelclap: I'm glad that my original post helped to open all these discussions, never thought a simple vent would stir up so much....LMAO! And if anything it helps me to realize that I'm not burned out, I'm only feeling that same feeling that many experienced nurses have felt throughout their entire career.
For those nursing students or new nurse that have not even begun to experience a our loads, I hope that you read this thread and learn from it. I have worked with some new nurses fresh out of school who choose this career for the wrong reasons. So recruiter convinced them that there was a lot of money in this field (well it depends on which state and specialty your in). Then when they start working they realize that its not the case and turn right around and run. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL GET SCREAMED AT, CURSED AT, SPIT AT, BIT AND KICKED, PUSHED AND DEGRADED AT ONE POINT OR ANOTHER IN YOUR CAREER.
:spbox: Understand that our rants/vents come from our "observation" of the human nature within our respective areas. And it is human nature to be judge mental and that no one is above it. Just like you were judgmental of me, so shall other will be of you..... why because we all have opinions and beliefs that we hold strong. Remember what you say, in a few years, if your lucky for it to take that long, you will be saying similar things!
:hug:I love my sisters and brothers in nursing! I hope that we will continue to come to this site and post our vents, concerns and questions regardless of what others may say. If we can't tell each other that are living it, who can we talk to........ I've gotta keep my sanity somehow!
