Someone asked me the other day if I missed the hands on part of nursing….no, I do not!!! I loved being a hands on nurse sometimes, but anymore, the patients you get in the hospital were rude, ungrateful, look at you as a bother and just plain ole pain in the butts. Not always, but the majority of the time. Whiney, selfish people who think they are the only people in the world so of course they think they are your only patient. No, I don’t miss it. I am taking care of the elderly patient population who were taught manners and to appreciate help and something someone does for them. My majority now are sweet and see what I do as a help to them and tell me before we hang up, “God bless you.” I feel more like a nurse now and get a better sense of accomplishment and appreciation then I ever did my whole career in a hospital. America is in such a sad state right now, and it’s only going to get worse.
