  1. I saw the video. She did nothing wrong. She should sue for the unprofessional way she was treated in front of all her coworkers.

    Got a nurse aide fired... did I do the right thing?

    I would have woke her up and talked to her about it and talked to her about what she needs to be doing in the nicest way possible. If she continued to do the same then and only then I would tell my superiors.

    I am finally able to leave nursing by January 2018

    I know this will probably be too much information.. I have been a web designer since I was 14, I am 34 now. I was home schooled and finished school early. Computers were always my passion but my mom and dad never had money to take me to college and schools where I was from were filled with bad kids, drugs, sex, gangs etc... I hated school and as soon as I turned 14 I started learning HTML, CSS, JavaScript, at that time flash animation and action script coding, asp etc... I graduated what would be 12th grade at a normal school by the time I was about to be 17. By 17 I had a job with a company I won't mention working from home. I was making good money and loved what I did. Fast forward to about 2005 I was making so much money. Believe it or not I was making over $7k profit a week and it got to a point that I couldn't handle all the jobs. At around 2010 I was still making good money and loved what I did. 0 stress and I enjoyed my work. I realized I had been working from home since I was very young and my social skills were not very good. In about 2010 I took a break and started traveling all over the world. Dubai, Egypt, China, etc... just so many places. I traveled without working for a long time and it was not just any travel but sort of luxury traveling for example $1800 a night at the burj al Arab in Dubai etc... Fast forward to about 2011 I noticed I didn't really have friends just my dog. I thought I should get a job where I can help people and be more social. I thought nursing would be an excellent choice so I went to lvn school without working the whole year. Fast forward I am now an LVN and work as a web designer on the side. My parents had several problems and I had to help them economically. I won't go into too much detail but now I have a home but am filled with so much debt. I cant quit my nursing job that I know is destroying me because web designing is not as stable as it once was. Starting in 2018 I plan to quit nursing completely and build up my web design business and other online stores Inplan to open. I will be working on my passion and hope for the best. As long as I have enough to pay even the minimum in all the debt I now have I will be happy. I have several plans that can really help me and pay well. One thing I can say is nursing did help my social skills so I do thank nursing for that. Wish me luck I plan to pay of all debt and start saving a lot after I pay it all. I will be working with what I love computers and it makes me happy that I will finally be able to quit nursing. :) I was also self taught so I have no degree only a large portfolio of work I have done. I plan to get a bachelors in computer programming so one day I can get a job at an actual firm or even further my own business. I skipped a lot and sorry for any misspelled words. I just wanted to give a good view of my situation.

    Sorry don't know what the trends are here. I haven't posted in over 1 year.

    I am finally able to leave nursing by January 2018

    I was looking at my old threads and I posted the below message in 2013. It makes me very said I still feel like this after all those years: These are the symptoms I feel: 1. My heart feels warm and is pumping faster and harder than usual. 2. I feel very anxious and nervous. 3. In the morning I always feel like throwing up just thinking about going to work. I do throw up about 70% of all mornings. 4. I shake every morning. 5. I breathe harder than usual. 6. A very uncomfortable nervous/anxious feeling all over my body.
  6. I haven't posted on this forum in a while. I am one of the people that feels nursing is way tooo stressful and my job has ruined my life. Every time I go to work I get nervous, anxious, I feel like vomiting and I have worked here for years. I used to be 150lbs just 5 years ago. I am now 220lbs. I eat to make me feel better and nursing also turned me into an alcoholic. I drink whiskey after a long day of work just to feel a little relaxed. I drink the day before I work to help me feel a little better. I get anxious knowing that I work the next day. I even feel like this 2 days or more before I work just knowing that I have to work in a few days. Dont get me wrong. I hide everything very well inside. All of my patients love me, I treat them like my own familly, my don loves me along with many of my coworkers. They always tell me that I am always very calm and so nice to everyone. I respect everyone and do my best every time I go to work. i even get the most patient satisfaction kudos cards quite often. I am a good nurse but inside I am deing. My financial situation has slightly improved and I plan to get out of nursing completely by January 1 2018. Sorry for the rant. I needed to let this out. Nursing has ruined my life. It's all about the profits hospitals make, short staffed etc... I could keep going on and on. I hate nursing. I am so happy I am brave enough to realize nursing is not for me and move to another career instead of doing something that has ruined my life for the rest of my life. I plan to further my main online business and several other online businesses. I will be working from home. I should have listened to my dad when he said to get a bachelors in information technology with a specialty in software development. I will most likely do what he said while working at home.
  7. Just another rant of mine. Nursing is very stressful. If you can please find a way to shadow a nurse or see the field before becoming a nurse. It is very very stressful and has ruined my life. I just posted another thread and I am happy to say I am quitting soon. I am hoping in 1 year at the most when I build up my online business to get more sales. Yes you make good money but I would prefer to get paid less and work in a low stress job that you actually enjoy going to. Nursing is not it. i have gained over 60lbs since being a nurse, I am balding, have lost so many friends, I get anxiety and depression thinking about work, sometimes a feel nauseated and vomit in the morning before work and shake..etc... I am anxious now because I work tomorrow. I feel terrible and sick

    Just wanted to say I hate nursing soooo much

    Thank you everyone. I will keep this thread updated with my progress. I work tomorrow I already feel anxious, nervous and sick.
  9. Don't get me wrong where I work I am nice to all of my patients and give them excellent care, my boss and coworkers love me and love working with me. I get many patient satisfaction cards all the time. Inside I am dieing, I get anxiety just thinking about going to work. Even on my days off when the day to works gets close I am already anxious about going to work. Short staffed, high acuity patients, 1 CNA for the whole floor etc... Just wanted to let it out again. I will quit nursing I am just working on a business and when it reaches enough monthly profits to pay bills and live comfortably I will finally quit. i can't wait. I have ruined 4 years of my life with this career. I am balding, gained so much weight, lost friends etc...

    I am completely burned out

    Thank you for your post. You are right I need to take care of myself.

    I am completely burned out

    I am sure its my job and management. Just yesterday I went to a restaurant and saw a group of 5 nurses eating lunch. Wow they looked so happy. We only get 30 minutes if that and most of the time I am called out of my lunch to go do a task or give medication, answer a call etc... Knowing their are jobs out there that probably give them 1 hour of lunch makes me feel better. I just don't want to take the chance and find another nursing job that will be as stressful as the one I currently have. These next 2 months I need to think really hard on what I want to do with my future.

    I also wanted to mention that I plan to quit my job in about 2 months. I will be so happy. :)

    I am completely burned out

    I just need to vent. I am suffering. When I wanted to go to nursing school I thought nursing would be so different. Every single day that I go to work it is very stressful, my hair is falling fast and I am gaining so much weight. Nursing is ruining my life. I lost many friends because of how stressful my job is and when I dont work I am still stressed because of the days I did work..and on my days off I get anxiety thinking that I am going to work the next day. I hate when nurses talk about other nurses, I hate when they are disrespectful towards one another. I hate being overworked and people taking advantage of me because they know I always say yes. I always help anyone that needs help regardless of how busy I am. Its just the way I was brought up. I am very respectful, never argue, very calm and nursing is a completely different atmosphere. I wish I could go back in time and go with another profession.

    5th time nclex taker

    Wow lol. When I said memorizing the questions of course you also memorize the answers. I studied every day. So much that i memorized all of the Kaplan Q Bank questions (and answers) and many of the Nclex book questions. When I was studying and saw a word i did not understand. For example (Dyskinesia). I would write it down on my notebook. I would look up and investigate any word I did not understand until I understood exactly what it was. Many times I would also see videos on procedures or illnesses. If you are a visual learner I recommend watching many videos. I am trying to help. Not sure why there are so many attacks against me. Edit: Study many multiple answer questions. Over half of my test was select all that apply.

    5th time nclex taker

    Ignore my previous message. What I wanted to say is that I wish you passed on the first try and with the minimal questions and that I wish you passed it on to me and I failed 5 times. If you want to pass I highly recommend the Kaplan Qbank questions, Hurst Review. Keep studying the Kaplan questions until you memorize them. I had memorized them so much that I didn't have to finish reading the question and I knew the answer on all of them. That is how much you need to study. You have to study every day and practice many MANY multiple answer questions.

    I know many people wont like what I want to say.. but I wish I was the one that failed 4 times in a row so that I can stop and do what I really like to do. The only thing that would of hurt me is the student loans. I would of taken it as a life tip. When you get into a field you should volunteer and see what being a nurse is all about. These passed few months at my new nursing job have been some of the most stressful days of my life. My hair falls of constantly and I get nervous every day I go to work. No matter how many days, months pass I still feel the same. I wish that I was in your shoes and failed. After the third attempt I would have chosen a different career. Don't get me wrong all of my patients love me and I care for them. Its just high levels of stress is not something I can live comfortably with.
