I’m fifteen and in the 10th grade. When I started working at McDonald’s I was thrown on the front register with nobody else up there to help me, the A. Manager didn’t train me and every time I asked her a question she rolled her eyes did it with no explanation and walked away. [...]more
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
When I was younger, all I cared about was animals. I persuaded everyone around me that I was going to be a vet. Times changed, I grew up, and people became my number one priority. I am very outgoing, I love helping others, and I figured heck-why not nursing! Plus I can handle blood, guts, [...]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.

This past weekend I worked a 12 hour shift both Saturday and Sunday. By the time I reached home I was burnt toast. It was impossible to complete what was expected of me in the 12 hours that I worked. I was so exhausted by the time I got home, I couldn’t unwind.
I am a fast food worker and have been for 5 years. During college, I decided to work at one to gain extra money to keep me afloat. I was crew and of course it fine at first. The restaurant at the time was slow and I basically felt that my minimum wage pay out [...]more
I have been a nurse for 37 years. I can’t retire yet because I’ve worked in nursing homes and I don’t have a retirement plan.
Nursing has changed so much in the last few years, I would advise anyone not to pick this profession. The state dictates the work and workload (amount of people needed to [...]
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’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 [...]
