Nursing: Not the Way it was Before

After reading many letters posted on this site about “nursing sucks” I couldn’t help myself but to write. I agree with all the nurses about the aspect of our job.

This is really a hell job that we paid to go to school for thinking we could help people. I have never been so depressed in my life as I have been as a nurse. I have gained 60 lbs in 7 years and have a lot of grey hairs and no self esteem left. Nursing sucks the life out of you. There is no nursing shortage. The nurses that have worked in this field no longer want to take the abuse. I’m sorry if this hurts anyone’s feelings but if you are thinking about or in school to be a nurse CHANGE FIELDS!!! Unless you like to be miserable for life.

Nursing gives you a great income but its not worth it. You are drawn to the money but find you hate your life and now you are stuck. You know you can’t make this income doing anything else. Nursing is not what it should be. It’s about money and politics of corporations. It has nothing to do with taking care of people. PLEASE……… find another area to work. You will never be able to be the nurse you want to be.
