    I'm lost. I want to quit nursing.

    I’m not sure how some can say, “you’re not giving yourself enough time to get comfortable.” Some times you just know. Like when the water is too hot, there’s no getting use to it, you fix it by adding cold to make it more comfortable. Or the tv/music...

    I'm lost. I want to quit nursing.

    It’s so sad that a “paycheck” is what nursing has come to for many of us. I started feeling that way too and had to make my way out. I worked so hard for my nursing degree and license and would hate for it to be jeaporidized for a paycheck. Yes we ha...

    I'm lost. I want to quit nursing.

    Awe man I’m in tears laughing right now! This is way sad. I was sure you were not being literal when you mentioned pliers. Oh boy! Good for you for saving yourself. Sounds horrendous!
  4. Please don’t beat yourself up. You’re not stupid. You are empathetic and you obviously care. You notified someone who could have further assessed the pt if deemed necessary. When you checked her she was fine. Ileostomies are tricky and some almost AL...
  5. It’s so sad how much we nurses are willing to SACRIFICE our own health and well-being to care for others. I’ve cared for many former or retired nurses in my career and work with a lot of burnt out ones and it saddens me and has given me a huge reali...

    Is Anyone A Highly Sensitive Nurse?

    Shy? PSTD? Lol. You're clearly NOT an HSP and ARE a burned out nurse. Hope you helped yourself and gracefully bowed out by now.

    Is Anyone A Highly Sensitive Nurse?

    Oh boy! I developed anxiety, stress and depression after nursing burnt me out last year. After nursing school, I paid for a Perioperative Nursing Certification because I thought I loved the rotation during clinical. WRONG! I opted for a position in H...

    Stupid looser nurse looking for work!

    Don't give up or be discouraged! Keep looking! It took me two months to land a LTC job when I graduated LPN school & that was through someone I knew. Now as an BSN-RN, I'm still at all of the jobs that hired me on as an LPN so I'm blessed but I'v...
