I don’t think you can do both.
A lot of times when we go to the hospital, we’re in our beds, and it’s just the way we’re taught.
I think it’s important for us to recognize that we’re there to be a good doctor, and that we can’t be a nurse if we’re not doing the work.
We’re supposed to be in a hospital, and we’re supposed be there to help people, but sometimes we can be a little bit too patient.
Nurse assistants are supposed to do the work, and they’re supposed a lot of the time, but they’re also supposed to provide some level of care.
They’re supposed have a lot more empathy, and some of the things that I see, like the nurse, is just so often kind of trying to save people, to help them and get them better.
And then it’s kind of like, ‘Oh, yeah, I can help you with that,’ because I’m the nurse.
But then it just goes downhill.
I just don’t see it as that good.
That’s where I’m coming from.
I’m a nurse assistant, and I want to help other nurses.
There are some things that are so important, I’m not even sure what I do as a nurse, but as a person, I really love helping people.
It’s not just what we do in our room, or the way that we treat our patients.
It’s our interactions with them that we enjoy, and what they’re trying to tell us.
When I’m out, it’s almost like, I’ll do what’s best for me.
