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. :)
