    How do you leave it at work?

    Yes, yes. We all know I screwed up by now and I took something somewhere it didn't need to go. But jensmom is right, the attention needs to go back to the OP.

    I think I have been misunderstood in my getting heated up over something, I apologize. I didn't intend to "hijack" this thread. What I was intending to say from the start and it did get out of hand was... I believe compassion and empathy should always be there. And that I feel it is normal to feel this way. BUT I did not mean to let it dominate you and allow yourself to bring it home with you. I was simply confirming that what you feel is normal and I've felt it before, as some of my friends have. I do believe it is important to find an escape. Something that you enjoy to "decompress". I apologize that it seemed as if I was saying to continue to feel like that and bring it home with you, I can see where I might have been misunderstood.

    I just felt that I heard this before in other situations and the nurse was not very kind to their patients. And they said this exact thing. And so I stated how I felt. Thanks.

    Nurses, how do you view your job?

    And that's what I was trying to say. You just said it better. I'm not talking about taking the work home with me. But I am talking about not wanting to end up saying its just a job.

    Lol I have a feeling that that's not why you posted that. Thank you though :)

    I'm not. It's kind of upsetting, however, when someone comes at you that "blunt", especially if you are newer. I will most assuredly listen to those that don't talk down to me. I understand I'm newer, and that definitely doesn't make me superior, but that also doesn't make me inferior.

    Okay so let me just say....I'm not talking about obsessing over them. What I'm talking about is just compassion and empathy. Another thing...I know I'm not "super" 365 days a year. A friend came up with the screen name and I thought it was cute.

    Nurses, how do you view your job?

    Can you really not do that? I want other peoples opinions. It's sad that a lot of people I've seen up here like to argue with one another and try to prove points. I thought being apart of this was going to help me, but every post I see, there are people that like to try and do exactly what you are.

    I'd rather have my pleasant thoughts than to go in there thinking like that. I'm allowed to be excited and I'm allowed to go in with that mentality. It's not very fair for those "experienced nurses" to kick you down. I think it's good to go in with a positive attitude. That's just me though. Sorry you guys don't think it's realistic to think like me, but its going to keep my head up on my tough days. Thanks for the advice though!

    Thanks, you have a great day too! :)
  12. I recently had a discussion with someone who views nursing as "just a job". But I feel it's more than that. They are using the fact that I am a new nurse against me and saying that basically I will eventually say it's " just a job". I never want to have that mentality though. I know that you get caregiver strain here and there and its hard work. But never could I picture saving lives as "just a job". Thoughts?

    Okay and so what. You're using my time of being a new nurse to try and make your point. When I know great nurses with my mentality. Again, I feel sorry for those under your care.

    Being a nurse is a privilege. And a calling. If your feelings aren't in it at all, what kind of nurse can you be? If I am going to be a great nurse, I want to be able to put myself in their shoes and give them the best care they deserve, the kind that I would want. There once was a day where nurses were kind, considerate, empathetic, caring, and felt compassionate for the ones they cared for. I didn't get into this profession to just keep people alive. I entered this profession because I care a great deal about people.

    And actually no. Not less than 6 months.

    I would hate to have you as my nurse. I feel for your patients.
