    I have been nursing since 1984 and I can honestly say it is the worst job I have seen bullying sexual harassment staff driven to suicide and other bad things I would have got out years ago but it's all I know so I plod on counting the years I have to go to finish. Managers are terrible only interested in money and being told if you speak out your finished so you shut your mouth and carry on oh and the poor patients the caring profession don't make me laugh. I feel sorry for new nurses I have seen how demoralised they become in a short time and pity them and they think coping mechanisms work, 5 yrs to go can't wait

    I've been a nurse for many years and this video is no help to anyone.  Alienation by peers is not a professional way to treat other staff.  It is usually The Crew or bully's who act like this.  Nurses seem very immature and suffer from early childhood trauma.  It use to be reported that nurses were co-dependent.  I am finding the best thing for any nurse to do is to address these concerns of childhood trauma and begin a healing process.  Nursing is traumatizing in itself and this video discusses being inspired but how be when there is hostility.  The Doom shouldn't be ignored as it is life saving intuition kicking in.  Please anonymously report the narcotics abuse to your states board of nursing/medicine, facility licensures when they don't follow state codes, and jeopardize ones license.  Report abuse and wrong doings to the State Ombudsman, BBB, and Adult protective services, and unsafe staffing levels because the patients are much sicker than a decade ago and the acuity is high.  Study an alternative field, boost your self esteem and get out as soon as possible which may alleviate the feelings of hopelessness.  Nursing is a bunch of abused people abusing each other.
