Yes I am in NS. Have you started yet?
I guess for me, I didn't *hate* anything I have done so far. In fact the 2 weeks we spent in the nursing home were my favorite. I do LOVE people, and I have empathy and sympathy as far as the eye can see. Do I want to do some of these things as a career day in and day out? No. But they are not completely intolerable, in fact, I am the annoying Ms. Sunshine of the group and I think everything I am doing, seeing, learning now will make me an awesome, kick ass trauma nurse one day. I want to be the best hiney wiper, brief changer and bed bath giver in the universe. That is how I intend to master everything, paying my dues and learning from the bottom. (no pun intended lol)
I love the poster before me who said, keep your mind open. I would add to it, keep your attitude open as well. Cognitive reframing lol...if you need to look at each client, each skill and imagine how it will apply to Peds, then so be it. The amazing nurses who went before us, and designed these programs have added each piece for a reason. Honestly, 2 years is a short short amount of time for the responsibility we are given as RN's. You are literally learning to hold lives in your hands.
There is no way around, you must go through.
Best of luck to you :)
