I have found a passion in nursing and gaining trust from a complete stranger in one of their most vulnerable times. With that being said, nurses are pulled in so many directions daily. Your first responsibility is caring for your patient, and that means coordinating care between everyone who is involved with the patient: the doctor, specialists, other departments, therapies, and the family. With type of responsibility on your shoulders you have unreasonable and sometimes unsafe demands from corporate to take into consideration. Sometimes you will work short staffed and cannot provide the best care that you would like to for your patient. You will work like you should be making $50 per hour when actually you are only making half of that. At times, families will be unrealistic with their loved one's prognosis and push for them to have more and more interventions that are only prolonging the inevitable. Nursing is not for the faint of heart. It is a very difficult career choice, but if you have a desire to make an impact on the life of another person, it may be the job for you.
