Nursing is a hard job. It’s demanding. At all stages of your career, you are going to feel like quitting. You will struggle. You will wonder what this is for. People will try to break you down, challenge your intelligence, your skills, and your right to be where you are. You will have moments where you question yourself. But you will RISE. You will.
You will rise because your strength as a nurse is not determined by one grade, one shift, and one title. It is an ongoing journey of learning, honor and humility. It is a chance to make a big difference in many patients’ lives. – Anonymous
And you are not alone. One of the best parts of nursing is your fellow nurses. I know I would not be the nurse I am today without the nurses at Florida Hospital Fish Memorial. They taught me everything I know about how to care for heart patients and a few things about my own heart & soul. They supported me and loved me throughout my roughest and most triumphant times in my life. There is bond that Nurses have that others will never understand. It ‘s bond that keeps you coming back for more after a full moon 12 hr understaffed shift.
P.S. There is something to be said about the sense of community that comes with working long shifts in the hospital setting. The techs, the doctors, the nutrition staff, secretaries, the engineering staff, case management, housekeeping, and upper management – you develop an attachment to everyone because you are all “In This Together”.
I won’t lie; I miss my old stomping grounds FHFM.
I am so grateful for the friendly faces on my new floor.
