I have been a RN for 11 years now, have seen much as many of you have. One thing that continues to irk me are nurses that think because they are a nurse are somehow a cross between Florence
I have to agree. There are some in the nursing field that are, in my terms, high on their own fumes. It is apparent with the existence of things like novelty t-shirts that support such arrogance. I will have to add some of the examples later. I became a nurse because I wanted to care for others. I worked hard to get where I am, but I am not looking for external validation – nor do I feel compelled to remind those around me of the work as some sort of self-sacrifice that others need to acknowledge in front of me.
