  1. After reading all the replies, I feel discouraged and sad, I have a knot in my throat because I feel like crying. I haven't been able to sleep because I keep thinking about if I'm making the right move in working there without the vaccine and torn be...
  2. Thank you for being the only person that at least asked why I don't want to get it, instead of just telling me to get it. First, I don't feel comfortable putting something in my body that we don't know much about. It's a different type of vaccine in ...
  3. I feel like if they were in desperate need for a warm body, they would have it all over job search websites. I applied for one position and ended up being offered another. To answer your question, no, I do not drink soda, alcohol, do drugs, or smoke....
  4. It is not mandatory at the SNF I applied. But they will be testing me for covid once a week which I'm fine with. Yes, I know the flu shots are required and I do get them the times when I've worked. Yes! It did scare me, and if I'm the only person in ...
  5. So I wanted to come on here because I've been thinking about something and it has kinda taken away my excitement. So I haven't worked in 2 years and I haven't really had a hands-on, bedside care nursing experience since I graduated nursing schoo...

    I'm way too scared to even start. I need help

    Hi nurses. I am coming on to here extremely frustrated and I am extremely embarrassed of myself. Last post I mentioned how I am trying to get back into nursing after 5 years. I am on my phone so I am not sure how to post that link. Anyway, I have bee...
  7. Hi NurseAsh89. Thank you for sharing your story with me. I'm glad to know there are other people who were once in the same situation as I am right now. It really shows that things do get better. I'm so happy to learn that there are other people who a...
  8. l Aaaaww! Can we be friends? Lol you are very encouraging! Thank you for sharing your story with me. It does really help me knowing that there are others who have felt and gone through the same thing I did/am. Especially hearing stories of pe...
  9. Hi Dave. Wow, I am glad to hear I am not the only one with a similar journey. Thank you so much for sharing. This is really comforting to hear, I mean, it sucks that it happened to you and I, but I'm so happy to hear that things turn out and get bett...
  10. Hi Nursex23. Thank you so much for your reply. You gave me awesome advice, I think I should write myself a 5 year plan, and have it as motivation to keep going. I think I will take on a job at SNF. It seems like that is the best path to take just to ...
  11. Hi. I'm sorry but I am not by any means throwing myself a pity party. I don't want/don't need anyone to feel sorry for me. You said "for the majority of us, no one held our hand throughout life" but isn't it what these platforms are for? to ask for ...
  12. Hi Scribblz, I really appreciate your reply. Your words do give me encouragement. Thank you! You are completely right in that I do feel discouraged and isolated, like I said, I don't know anyone that I can reach out to for advice regarding nursing. S...
  13. Hi! Thank you so much for your reply. I feel relieved to hear that it is ok to feel scared and dumb at the beginning, it makes me feel like I am not really dumb, and it is just part of the beginning of this whole nursing journey, I will have feelings...
  14. Hi beautiful nurses! I just wanted to come on here to vent a little and also would like some encouragement and motivation as I feel I'm running out of that. My story is super long, so I'll try to shorten it (I've written about parts of my struggles h...

    Advice on how to handle a situation at work.

    Thanks everyone that replied. Sadly, I was fired the morning after writing this post. It was ugly, heartbreaking, and difficult to process it. I've never been fired before and always had positive feedback from previous employers. It sucks how they ma...
