Wow…I’m not alone…screw nursing!…male nurse

Screw Nursing!

I am a male LPN, and have been working in the field for over a year now, mostly in med/surg nursing. All I can say is “what the hell was I thinking?!?!”

Where should I start? Let’s see here: the cliques of bitches looking to stab you in the back for ANY reason, being treated like a turd by doctors (self titled Medical Deities), being treated like pond scum by the patients and their families, understaffing, overworking, lack of support from totally unprofessional and uneducated assholes in management…I could go on and on with examples, but I won’t. You already know what I am talking about.

I don’t mind the shit, the blood, the code blues, giving patients emotional support when needed. Its everything else I described before that makes me hate what I do.

To anyone who is crazy/masochistic enough to really want to do this line of work: RUN FAR, FAR AWAY.

There are some days I would rather be a garbageman or a cop. I wish I could be in Irag right now; at least there, I could shoot back.
