    You don't get paid enough, your coworkers are typically toxic, your administrators are either unqualified to be making medical decisions or medically competent but have no managerial skills and treat it like it's British Royal politics (you will NEVER have a boss that's both a qualified nurse and a good administrator), you're overworked, will have atypically bad working conditions, will see lots of emotionally exhausting situations, it's physically demanding...

    Nurses eat their young for a reason.

    My mom is a nurse by the way, which is how I know.

    @shortnsweet is a nurse, and I believe @AphroditeGoneAwry is a nurse midwife... although I don't know if either of them still post that much on here.

    Similar careers which pay more/have more autonomy would be NP or PA. More schooling though, too.

    Oh dear... I wonder if my sister will be able to handle this work, if this is the case.
    Only she who attempts the absurd can achieve the impossible... and then some.

    Yea, ridiculousness is ridiculous though, and in life we have to try and leave it in the ridiculous compartment, even if it permeates our job.

    In regards to the OP, you have to make it okay... If you make a point to stay around some brighter, lighter, more inspiring people, it is realistic to stay happy and fulfilled. And if you can do that, then it can actually make you really strong in a lot of other areas of your life, and it's really freeing.... You have to be prepared for a lot of shall I say... *character building*. There are craploads of great people, craploads of wisdom, craploads of happiness, but also craploads of craploads. Cliche, but it is what you make it. It's rare to be a true natural as well I noticed. Be prepared to be bad at some or many aspects of school and your job..... There's lots of nurses on youtube that are helpful. Is nursing a good career? ...... Maybe.

    So I don't have any first-hand experience with this, but my mom is a nurse. She became a nurse a bit later in life, and I have to say that ever since she started working, she is always exhausted. Like I said, she is a bit older...so maybe it isn't as exhausting for everyone, but I dunno. The pay does seem to be pretty good though. My mom makes much more than my dad (if he didn't also get a pension), who is a skilled factory worker.

    from my understanding. Nurses get paid more than other people and what you get paid also is dependant on what type of nurse you are.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    crossing my fingers that I chose right.

    as a male, i notice it is often viewed as female to nurse, but the youtube male nurses looked happy. :]

    I know a few nurses, it looks like hard work, but it's very much in demand and you can find a job anywhere. More than a couple of them are working to cross over to be doctors.
