Your right, everything she stated does happen in every profession. List off all the professions you can compare nursing too? There are some and then check suicide rates in each one.
She’s been in this for 20 years as she states so she must be doing something right. Years of experience should really mean something in this profession than many others. We Sadly, that’s not what I have personally seen. Just get a bigger target on your back because they can always get a new grad. There are some gravy nursing jobs out of the acute setting. However, vast majority of the venting on this thread is from the acute care setting.
I could go on and on about this but it’s like beating a dead horse. If you love nursing and can’t understand why others have complaints then you do you. I prefer though to listen and support people in this profession that are having problems. Sometimes people just need to vent.
Nothing she is saying is not obviously true and I don’t think that anyone getting into a field of caring for others would expect that they would feel so devalued. Just my two cents.
