I’m an RN, 2 years now. I work in a busy long term acute care hospital. It is one of the hardest jobs. RNs are given a lot of responsibility right off the bat it can be scary. You get crap from patients families, doctors, CNAs, PT, OT,  administratiion.  Patient/nurse staffing ratio has a lot to do with it sometimes it is downright unsafe and makes it difficult to give the proper care to patients and that is frustrating. everything comes down on the nurse it can be stressful. That being said it can be very rewarding and challenging in a good way. There is a ton of opportunity and room for growth. I am getting great experience and skills and I am a lot more confident.

I’m an ICU nurse and I love my job. That being said, when I worked floor and step down nursing I hated it. It took me over 3 years to find my “niche”. The great thing about nursing is that there are so many different things you can do with your degree.

Don’t go into it for the money though, if you do you will be highly disappointed. We make decent money but don’t be fooled, we work our asses off for it!
