Do you want the end of un-godly hours making more money while still be able to take time off for the events with your kids that means a lot to you without the fear of losing your job or getting in trouble.
Are you just a number? You know the number that has a badge and clocks in at your job with corporate America. Show up to work on time, punch in, go to your work station and be counted as a warm body. You don't really have to be exceptional at what you do, however as soon as you make a mistake the buzzards swoop down to pick you apart.
I have loved being a nurse for 24 years. My favorite part of the medical field is mental health for 21 of those years, where I listen to peoples stories that make me laugh and break my heart. I listen as their life seems to be in a twisted mess that is weaved around people just like you and me. Educated to street people, from jail and prison. We turn no one away. We have no protection with us but each other as a team and the skills that you learn along the way. What is amazing – when most of these people are brought to our facility they are escorted by the police with court orders to be admitted. They are hand cuffed and shackled during their transportation. Once inside our building they are released to us with nothing but my favorite writing pen uniball signo 207. It takes skills, gut feeling and fast reaction to work in a very unpredictable state funded environment where objects fly. Things like chairs, hair brushes, tables, quick tempers, food, juice, and spit. Yes I said, spit.
We have lost a lot of good nurses for many reasons, but very few are out of fear of the job duties.The biggest reason is how they are treated. It is hard to show up in a aggressive environment when you know the patient will always be right and you will be charged with a write up that goes in your file against you. Once it is dropped in your file your next worry is job security.
Your licenses that allows you to work to feed your family and that you worked so hard for in school is at the mercy of someone else's opinion. Nurses are educated care givers who walk in fear of making errors that can cost someone their life or their own job.
Most nurses do not mind working hard. They do not mind working short staffed. They will even work without yearly raises. The breaking point has always been how the administration makes you feel. People want to feel appreciated, validated and recognized. When the only recognition you receive is negative without support the stress sets in to take over the atmosphere in which you work.
Very rarely will someone be called to the 'office' to be given a pat on the back. It is always to let you know what you did wrong. The dreaded call "Can I see you in my office." You already know you messed up somewhere.
Yearly meetings are called and full details of the upgrades being done to restore the building and programs being started. The works that are in process we can rarely see the results. According to the reports millions of dollars being spent – Millions! Then the final report comes – once again for the 4th year in a row no raise. Only one person was handed a reward, not a fancy wooden plaque but a piece of paper in a paper folder. How sad that he dreaded going forward to receive it instead of excited. The atmosphere is controlled with intimidation, no comments or statements are made just silent listening.
Do you feel unrecognized, disrespected even or worse yet invalidated, even thought people depend on you to show up every day. Do you feel like the only way to get the freedom you deserve is to quit your job?
