Where is the support for the nurse? When I started nursing school 1986 I had no idea what I was really getting into. I just wanted to be able to have a job that traveled any where I wanted to live. No one told me what I would experience would be left up to me […]
Being in the nursing field where we are caring for other people, monitoring their diets, fluid intakes and
watch the diabetic with an eagle eye for proper diets. The nurse her/him self are not following the same nursing care for their diets. Across America dieting is a huge fad and on average every other women/man you speak with are “dieting”. Drinking a diet coke and a candy bar is not a diet.
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.
Wouldn’t you like to have an illness that is not curable … well not just any illness but happiness. There are some people that are so happy you almost have to stare at them to see what is wrong with them, since that is not a normal behavior for the average person.
The next shift of nurse clock in at 1800 (6 PM) walking though four sets of locked steel doors they step into a all male unit with 12 clients. The air was filled with energy and extra staff has already been called to the unit. Every one has on the bright blue gloves for a fashion statement that someone is not cooperating.
