Ive worked as a school paraprofessional at multiple schools and feel it’s very necessary to inform parents and those considering paraprofessional jobs of what really goes on.
The facts are that for the vast majority of paraprofessional positions, no education beyond a GED is required (and even that can be worked around by taking a “keys” [...]
I don’t live in America, so our job description is a little different then yours.
We mostly work with ventilated patients, but we trouble shoot monitors and other medical equipment. We are technicians, and therapists.
Anyways, I get a call at 1 am saying the HFO isn’t working on a 2 year old. Little did I know then [...]
Love my job, should’ve know the truth, and can’t STAND my Co-workers
So I know, that title says a lot huh? I’m kinda all over the place with that one. I suppose I should start from the top.
I spent 2 HARD years and 25K obtaining my BSN, and finally graduated in Dec ‘10. Whoopty whoop! The hard [...]
I waited my whole life to go to nursing school and become a nurse. Nursing school was rough and I had one abusive instructor, but I stuck with it until I graduated with my BSN. After school, I went from one nightmare job to another. I suffered horrible anxiety attacks, vomiting and severe [...]more

The training was a lame 1960s video, which had nothing relating to [...]

I was hired as a manager assistant and told I would work there for a half-year.
I quit a job I’d hated so I could accept this job. Approximately four days after hire, I was told that they had lied and that the job would only [...]
My job is the Bakery Assistant in the afternoon. That really just translates to the bakery cleaner… because everyone knows there is no bread baked in the afternoons (at least in grocery stores anyway). Before this job I was working in the grocery department of the same supermarket, but due to being a full time [...]more
I wake up every morning and say the Our Father to myself in order to get me through another day of backstabbing, demoralization, and disappointment in humanity. I am a RN-BSN.
PLEASE reconsider if you are considering becoming a nurse because I know once that time/money is invested in a education, you have reached the [...]
I am working with a Preservation Company and it sucks. I have worked in some very high level professional roles and am not used to this kind of environment at all.
Owner burps, farts and curses like crazy. Constant F bombs being dropped. His wife is just as bad. Last week she brow [...]
Ok, you never realize you’ve made poor choices until they’ve already flourished (or spoiled) and shown their full effect. I’ve been trying to be the person who’s had their shit together since my seniour year in high school. I had grandiose dreams of going off to art school and becoming a fashion designer and working [...]more
