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 was basically raised to be a restaurant worker! My Mom was a waitress and my Dad a bartender. All of my siblings started in a restaurant but are out now. I grew a love for the business and have decided to make it my career. Only problem is, I seem to let everyday stresses [...]more
I am a RN with 26 years in the field and have been mostly in the psychiatric and gerontology fields, you know, old folks homes. Well, it has been a rough last ten years working in the hard psych floors, but that presently is not my bitch.
It is the place where I have had been [...]
I’m glad to here that I’m not alone in my feelings of nursing. I have been a floor nurse for only a year now and have already decided to leave the profession.
I was spoon fed how wonderful a career in nursing is. I’m sure you guys have all heard it too: “its great money, you [...]

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 [...]more
I took a little time to examine the stories of fellow McDonald workers. I’m completely surprised by what I’ve been reading; it’s gone so far that workers in the UK have banned together to basically shut down the entire corporation.
I’m a swing manager at McDonald’s and I’m making around 10 dollars an hour for a [...]
Wow! I guess my job is not so bad after all. I am general manager for a marina and do enjoy being on the water and around boats which I love.
The biggest headache though is the people. Probably 90% of the people I deal with are great folks, and I enjoy them. But the other [...]
