I've Had Enough!!!
I'm so glad I have found a page i can come here and ***** about how miserable i feel about nursing...i hate it, i hate it with an absolute passion!!!! honestly, upper management who probably has never been on the floor in a century comes up with stupid rules and initiatives that are not practical! i've had it with the whole career, i'm in my early 20's and i'm burned out, i've just entered my third year...thinking of nursing honestly makes me want to cry. i swear its throwing me into this depression...i hate it, i hate looking after people who don't give a crap about their own health and expect miracles to happen when they get into hospital, i hate the abuse i get from patients and their families, patients rights!!! wtf?!? how about our rights as health professionals, do we not have the right to also be treated with dignity and respect? so am i expected to stand there and just take the abuse?!? and then the same patients are so sugarly sweet with the doctors it sickens me. i can't even smile at work anymore, the thought of it depresses the crap out of me... i want a career change...i have friends who got out...lucky them!!! aware that every career has its pitfalls, the good thing about nursing is that it gurantees us a job, and i know why now...because its such **** that no one in their right frame of mind would do it for long, thats why they probably have such a high turnover, i'm sick of bedpans and commodes, people crapping themselves and expcecting that i would drop everything for them....its not my fault you upsized all your combos and ate all that refined sugar and now weigh 260Kg and expect me to be at your back and call...please don't make me laugh., i've got a back injury because a patient pulled down on me!!! i hate the melodramatic patients...i wish i became a vet nurse instead, at least there, the animals make me happy and overall, would proably treat me far better!!!
