It took me years to discover that nursing was not for me. I thought it was the type of nursing jobs that I was getting. I graduated with my BSN (BULL SHIT NURSE) from a very prestigious nursing school.
I have been nursing for 9 years now, and I hated every minute of it. I have worked in clinics, in neuro medicine, in OB, in home health, in nursing homes, in hospitals, in school nursing, and in management. I have hated all of my jobs.
I came to the conclusion that it is not the jobs, it’s the career choice. People tell me all the time how lucky I am to be a nurse. They are just looking at the money aspect and not all the crap that goes along with the job. I have not found a job yet that pays me extra because I have a BSN.
They are just happy to know that I have an RN license and I am hired just because I am a nurse not because I have a baccheleors. I have suffered many years of depression because I picked nursing as a career. I discourage students when they ask me about being a nurse. I tell them the truth. No, I do not like being a nurse and I do not recommend anyone to go into this stressful field. I am 30 years old and I am BURNED OUT. I cried when I read some of these articles in this section.
I typed “I hate nursing”, and this web site popped up. I can’t believe that there are others out there who feel the way I feel. It makes me feel relieved. I thought that I was crazy to hate a job that pays me $38/hr. I bring home $1100 every friday and I hate every minute of working as a nurse. Sometimes it is not about the money.
I am overworked and stressed out and most of all unappreciated. I am seriously thinking about getting my real estate license. These articles have given me some inspiration. I really can walk out of this dreadful career.
