Nursing is a changing profession. Most nurses enter the field because they have a caring heart, and a desire to help people. We see people on the best or worst day of their life.
With that being said now nursing is all about charting and how much you can get done in 12 hours. It is all about management and administration and making money.
Nursing used to be about patient care and now it is about profit. If nursing professionals are not able to provide optimal care, the purpose of being a nurse is futile. Staffing is the main obstacle to providing patient care. Until there are enforceable policies regarding patient to nurse ratios, only option is to work in a unionized environment where acuity and ratios are the law.
Decide if you are a loving caring kind of person who always wants to do for other people. Take heed in learning the interpersonal skills taught in nursing school. If you enjoy psych, it will help.
