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, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The Stress is Not Worth the Pay for Nurses

I am so glad (but sorry too) to see all the other nurses who feel as I do. I can’t believe the stress and workload expected of the RNs in my unit and hospital. From what I read it’s the same everywhere too.
I read someone make a comment that they were [...]

Waitressing is Better than Teaching Bratty Kids

I went and got a masters’ degree because I thought teaching was my dream.
My family was so proud because I’d no longer be waiting tables! I was the first one in my family to not only go to college but to get a masters’ degree!
Anyway, my student teaching went OK. It was in the inner [...]
