As Bad as it Gets in Nursing

I am a staff nurse and just being a nurse makes me want to kill myself. I work in the worst environment I can think of. I would rather dig holes for a living and live in the local shelter than continue to work in the nursing profession. If you want to waste your life, [...]

Help! I Want to Escape from Nursing

Even though I had my doubts while I was still a pre-registration student, I stuck out my nursing degree and managed to graduate with the highest grade possible – getting a first post as a Staff Nurse / RN on a 36-bed medical ward I’d enjoyed as a student. The only thing that kept me [...]

Nursing Shortage is not Surprising at All

After typing in ‘I Hate Nursing’ into Yahoo, it’s a relief to find I’m not to only one who bitterly regrets the day they gave their life over to this sorry ‘profession’. Although I’m in the U.K., I was starting to think about what jobs the U.S.A. and Canada had to offer, but after reading [...]

Working at Intelex of Carmel is Hellish

I worked w/ Intelex of Carmel, IN for a while and have to say it is the worst place I have EVER worked. They treat their employees terribly and have extremely unrealistic expectations.
Management doesn’t trust the employees and employees don’t trust the management. I can see why nobody trusts management as they are [...]

They always wanted you to call it telefundraising because “we’re not selling anything.” which is true I suppose we just want you to give money for nothing. Anyway I liked the job to begin with. It beats working at a fast food place. Very little occupational [...]

Woolworths Work Experience is not too Great

I work for a mob called Woolworths, or Woolies (roughly the equivalent of the American Wal-Mart.) More specifically, I work in the deli. Good Fun. We get to slice and dice all manner of processed goods, shove them in a bowl and sell them to unhappy customers.
It’s not too bad a job, it probably beats [...]

One Profession But Two Different Experiences

I got my CNA (Assistance licence) in Oregon, hoping to further my career from being a cashier. I got set up to be fired from this grocery store I actually liked. Upon this caning, my manager had the audacity to say “please keep shopping with us”. I got a job as a CNA where I [...]

My Uninteresting Life as a Maintenance Man

According to personnel records, I(we) am(are) an “Electronics Repairman”. Sounds like a highly paid TV shop job, eh? Yeah, we make pretty good money. And that’s as far as it goes with a lot of guys(and a few gals). Take the money and run.
Me, now, I’ve got a shop at home that is actually better [...]

Looking for a Job that Pays Well Except Nursing

I am just another nurse frustrated by the insensitivity of CEO’s sticking it to nurses so they can have enough money left over at the end of the year for their new yacht, summer house, private island, whatever. You get the point. The reason I think there is a nursing shortage is because nobody [...]
