Name:  Angelique
Age:  26
Location:  Wisconsin
Type of Nursing:  Cardiology/Progressive Care Unit (12-hour Night Shifts)
Anything Else To Share:  I have to agree with the quote someone else had included, that "Only nurses understand nurses".  I love my career choice, but somedays there's no amount of money I could be getting paid that would make all the stress and heartache worth it.  Of course then there are the good days, and the appreciative patients and families, and the helpful coworkers that make it seem like just maybe it's the most rewarding and fulfilling job I could imagine myself ever doing.

Hey there

Howdy Angelique ~~

I see this post was back in April, so who knows if you'll get this?

I'm a new nurse & mirror your sentiments regarding your sentiments regarding our career choice.....

I'm beside myself @ how things truly are...and I know they are this way due to the nursing shortage...noone really to blame, just circumstances...I'm NOT ok w/doing a bare minimum to get by in order for everyone to get what they need....I'm NOT ok w/giving less than excellent care to each & every one of my pts......

I'm giving myself time to become fluant with things before I decide whether I feel I can deliver acceptable care to all my pts -- according to my own standards.....

I hope this finds you doing well!!
