The New Generation RN’s are a Bit Sociopaths

As told by a former CNA:
I’ve never in my life seen such a dysfunctional career setting as the Nursing profession. What a disgrace and cry for help!! What has happened to this profession? When I was growing up, I remember going into hospitals to visit relatives, friends, etc. and seeing these women, GROWN ADULT women [...]

I like giving care to people but truthfully, people are more grateful to the guy who changed their oil in their car than to the nurse who suctioned their mothers throat so she could breath. They just want to know why the sheets weren’t changed today. I was sort of defaulted into nursing. With young [...]
