This is about my personal experience on being a nurse.

Nursing a Career of Caring

It’s been six years since I started my nursing career. As I go along I have learned a lot of things about it, some have been good, some have been bad and some I have forgotten already. When I was still in school we were more focused on the academe rather on the hands on skills, when I started working that is where I was able to learn more on the skills.

Although I have six years of experience already I still have a lot of things to learn. Everyday is a new day to be educated and patient care is not static rather it is dynamic and treatment mode is not universal for all sick people even if they have the same case. In my nursing career, I can say that I have experienced a lot. Sometimes it’s hard to cope up with these things because most of them contribute to stress but then again I can say that I was able to choose the right profession. I love my job so much even if I have to deal with unruly doctors, irritable patients and lazy colleagues.

I can say that even if nursing has a lot of downside I still have a lot of good memories to treasure and this are the things that made me believe that I am on the right track. It really warms my heart when my patients say thank you with all their heart because I was a part of their healing or when they say thank you because even if death is inevitable they know that I didn’t all the best I can to take good care of their sick loved ones. There are even times when they are the ones providing meals and tokens because of my work dedication.

I have a lot to complain with my career not just on monetary matters, on tiring night shifts, bosses who can’t appreciate my job but then again I know that I belong here because I know I am an instrument of healing and caring.
