Nursing Survey says nurses love what they do
Over the last few weeks I have ask nurses of all branches of service to fill out the survey to give them a voice and hear what makes them go back to the job when the shift before was a nightmare. Not one nurse said she did not care any more. They wanted to be able to care more.

What made you choose the nursing profession?
*Started out working as a nursing assistant and wanted to be able to do more, then became an LPN and then an RN.,
*To help sick people who lived in poverty stricken area
*Ever since I was a child, I wanted to be a nurse.
*I wanted to help people. I felt it was a profession that was well respected and really could make an impact on others lives.
*Just knew I wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl.
*I chose nursing because I was a born caregiver and decided it was the best career path for me.
*Because i liked 2 be a nurse and my sisters who are nurses as well inspired me
*I have always been a "mother hen" type ever since I was a small child, and nursing is a career where one can care for others and truly make a difference in people's lives.
*I always wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl. I wanted to help people. It is as simple as that.
*I wanted to be able to make a difference in someone's life.
What is the biggest challenge in nursing?
*Not getting burnt out.
*Being able to connect in some way with the wide variety of patients you can encounter..The constantly changing demands, and few of those actually involve the delivery of patient care. For the most part the ever changing work demand are CYA type things.
*Being an advocate without being looked at as a troublemaker.
*The politics of the job. I am always updating my resume for the even that I find myself out of a job because of the politics of our hospital.
*To save clients life and to provide care to them.
*The politics of healthcare; it has become such a business driven by profit and executives that don't really have much experience actually caring for patients.
*Having to work the night shift as a the new kid in town.
*Respect, time, supplies
Out of all the replies over all nurses are happy with what they have been trained to do but they want to care more with better supplies and staff is always low.
I ask – Have you ever thought about giving up as a nurse?
The overall answer was NO. That was nice to hear that people are in he nursing profession because they care and do not want to leave – they want to work better, care more, and be able to care of the patients better.
