Back in the "before times" I had high aspirations of what being a nurse would mean. Two years later, I'm ready to quit because of all the stupid, selfish fuckwads that come through our hospital doors every day. Entitled Boomers who can't be bothered to take their meds and then demand we wait on them like fucking servants. Helicopter family members who couldn't pronounce most of them medications I give, much less understand what they do. Managers who care more about patient satisfaction scores and budgets than their staff. CEOs who feel they deserve 3 figure bonuses but clutch their pearls at the thought of giving us, the people who do the actual work, a raise of more than 2%. Most days, I really couldn't care less if most of you get sick or die, most of the time its your own damn fault. Thanks for destroying my empathy and making me hate people.
