Ten years a nurse

Post by PainRack » 2018-05-07 04:53am

So.... In the midst of fighting off a bacterial infection last week, I finally noticed my friends posting and realised this.

I have been a nurse for ten years now. 6 years in haematology, 10 months training in oncology post diploma and 3 years in internal medicine wards.....


It's been a long, crazy ride... I finally collected my first things people shove up their butt story 3 months ago, so... Even as the wonder has faded, every month still shows me something new to see and learn. I seen the first patient who ever trusted me as a nurse pass away... I also seen my first major case which I handled and led survive years later on which gave me a then much needed boost in deciding whether to continue on in my career, I'm still battling burnout and depression , I don't know how the next move into the fast pace world of a placement ward will go but it's been a journey . I don't have any professional recognition other than my service awards, I'm not famous or ranked highly, but I know that I'm valued as senior doctors on seeing me now in Internal medicine would ask why I left and enquire on my situation, I receive thanks from patients and doctors, I have junior doctors looking to me at time to lead protocol and expertise, and of course, doctors tolerating my quirks as I annoy them more than I annoy my colleagues. ..

I won't have changed this for the world, although I like to take back my immune system from ten years ago.

Thanks for reading.

Being a superhero is easy. Being a non-super hero takes actual courage.

Has he lost his mind? Can he see, or is he blind? Can he walk at all? Or, if he moves, will he fall?
"Beware the Beast, Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone amongst God's primates, he kills for sport, for lust, for greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him, drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of Death.."
