We All Want To Quit Sometimes….

At times you may find yourself wanting to quit and just throw in the towel, however taking care of people and advocating for them, is just a small snippet if why I became what I am today.

Doing the right thing can be challenging depending on the situation and the person, however for a patient, doing the right thing is never, ever wrong.

Today was one of thise days that I just wanted to throw my hands up, but I kept calling, and calling, and calling, until I finally made headway.

This was the reason why I became a nurse 14 years ago. Doending almost 2 hours playing phone tag with mid and high level providers should never be the case with something that appears to be so minute.

In the end I pressed on and was able to get the patient what she needed. She may never know what it took or how long it took, however, I left knowing that I did the right thing.

Happy Learning 👩🏿‍💻♥️⛑

  1. I totally agree! I can’t tell you how many times over the past 33 years that I’ve been tempted to totally quit nursing. I did actually take some breaks from it, and have worked retail occasionally — even had my own Mary Kay business for a while but stopped when I realized that I was my best customer. Each time I left, I always came back because nursing is where my heart is. The only change I’d make if I could would be this: to have gone for my masters as a nurse practitioner. I’m not far from retirement now, so learning to be an NP at this point doesn’t make sense. I’m still going for a masters, though, and I love school nursing. I can see myself doing this for the rest of my nursing career — with a CSN and a masters in Special Education added in. Good luck to you in your endeavors.
