    Millennial Nurses Have Issues

    "Addiction" Nursing is an outdated term.

    As I always say....... Same soup, just RE-HEATED!

    AITA?

    OP.....i think what you did was kind of noble. Many times we as nurses get so caught up in the mindset of people needing our services, we forget about ourselves!! Good for you for leaving and standing your ground. And you didnt abandon anyone....there was a nurse there who took over the cart and could pass the meds.

    WHY?

    Well CapeCodMermaid, good for you! And you continue to stay in LTC then. It is people such as yourself who make the world of LTC so much better for the residents there. Healthcare needs more peoole like you. Someone has definitely gots to do it.....but it wont be me.......at least not anytime soon. Homelessness PLUS starvation equals what, my dear? It equals the circumstances i would have to be under in order for me to have to go back to the nursing home to work. Im definitely NOT AT ALL trying to make it seem like im above it...heck i did LTC for many many years before getting my RN and doing hospital work. I just see my career going in a much different direction than LTC. Also, the residents were the absolute best part of working long term care! So many funny stories they would tell about their life expriences. And alot of them would give some of the most sage advice.

    LTC is making me hate nursing!!!

    Exactly! I dont ever want to go back to working in nursing homes. Its just waaaaay to much. I still stay very hopeful LTC will get better....i mean it has to at this point. I dont think it can get any worse.

    You know what grinds my gears?

    ^^THIS!!! .....or people who say they got into nursing because they "like helping people", as if there is no other profession in the world where they can help people. Then complain how stressed they are at work trying to "help people"....i mean did they not research the profession....lol. Last thing is, people who say they got into nursing because they will always have a job. Which is totally far from the truth. (ok, done!) LOL

    Guys, I'm an unintentional job hopper.

    I understand your plight. But you are still fairly early in your nursing career, so finding your niche may take trail and error. I commend you on having the courage to step out and experiencr different areas of nursing. Keep in mind, nowadays employers have No loyalty to their nurses anymore. We are constantly overworked most times. And many jobs will let someone go for the smallest of infractions. Good luck to you!

    Social Media and Doxxing - Your Thoughts???

    This was definitely not worth putting someones job in jeopardy. He did not violate hipaa, there was no patients in danger nor staff for that matter and he attempted to do the right thing bg blurring his own name.out....so yes, with that...it should have just been left alone. From a moral standpoint....IMO this was so wrong for him to be outted and terminated.

    Social Media and Doxxing - Your Thoughts???

    I do not condone what the nurse did to him! I absolutley think the nurse went way too far and put too much effort into "unblurring" his last name. But as vindictive and underhanded as some people in the nursing profession are inside the walls of an employer (i.e. bullying, backbiting, incivility, etc..) makes me wonder why he wouldnt think a nurse on the outside of his job wouldnt be the same way. LESSON HERE: do NOT post anything work related on social media. I am rooting for his rebound and recovery. Im sure he will be able to secure employment somewhere else and he can take this as a lesson learned.

    Sad situation here. I hope he can find another job. This is the exact reason i do not have any form of social media. All it takes is one photo or comment, and things can go im the wrong direction.
