It sucks being a nurse.

It sucks being a nurse? Nah, definitely not. Out of all the working fields I have worked for, there is no fulfilling job than being a nurse. My profession might be one of the most underappreciated occupations of all, but it is one of the most vital careers in our society. Imagine the world without a nurse, who will take good care of you in case you will be hospitalized? 
When a nurse works, he will come to the hospital 30 minutes before his shift. He will receive patients carefully, ask a lot of questions pertaining to the charts, take his' patients vital signs, regulate their IV's, give their medications, carry out doctors' orders and monitor his patients all throughout the shift. Most of the time, he is being shouted out for not attending his demanding patient immediately because he is feeding an intubated patient. Being scolded for asking questions because he corrected a physician for a wrong order. I have been there, I know it sucks but the passion to care is there and I will not stop.

Having the heart to serve people is one of the foundations I have. It is easy to be called a nurse, but it will entail a series of selflessness, being compassionate and being genuinely caring for someone you are not related by blood. So think again, do you think being a nurse sucks big time? If you think so, then F*ck you but if you think the other way around, thank you. :)

  5. One of the toughest job is being a nurse. I have friends who are nurses and I can't deny the fact that they really have a hard time once they are on their duty.

  8. It's good that you love the career path you chose and are enjoying it instead of it being a burden like some jobs. I salute nurses for the dedication they put into their work.

  9. This was a very eye-opener post for some and that's an awesome outfit! Its true, nurses don't often get the appreciation they deserve and need to make things lighter for them too. I knew about this when my Tita was sent to the ICU for a couple of days. We made friends with the ICU nurses so we can regularly ask updates. When our Tita got better and that was her birthday, we gave the nurses a bilao of pancit and some other kakanin and they were almost teary eyed. They said they can't accept but we insisted. That's when I realized that nurses don't often expect you to appreciate them but as courtesy, we should.

  10. I first dreamt of becoming a nurse, but it didn't push through. Now my sister is an RN not only here in PHL but also in Abu Dhabi so I have great respect to you guys! - KarenT

  11. I wanted to become a doctor, but since we were financial unstable the time I went to college, I stepped back and decided to go a different route. Being a nurse is a long time vocation. You need to be passionate about it so you could care for patients like as your own. I have very much respect with you guys.

  12. I know how hard it is to be in that profession. I used to handle nurses in my past job. Being a nurse is not only a profession, it's a mission.

  13. Aaah.. Nurses! We have plenty of them in the family and I've seen their hardships. But I think nurses are appreciated naman in PH. There's a time when almost everyone I knew wants to be a nurse. It still one of my dream jobs though; however I needed to let it go, mukhang hindi para tlga sa akin. :(
