Tales of a CNA trying to stay sane in an Alzheimer's World
All my adventures (and misadventures) in the world of medical care. By the way, feel free to comment on any misadventures you've had. Misery loves company after all!
Graduation.....Now what?
So I've graduated. Well I graduated in December, so yeah this post is a little late. Don't ********' judge me. I have a degree and I'm excited, I guess. I though that getting a job would be easy. I mean, I'm a nurse. There's a nursing shortage. I'm like a shoe-in right? Hah! You're mistaken my friends. I've been applying for jobs for TWO months. I've put in an application for over 20 jobs, and I've only received one call back just yesterday. It's for a job at the ER, which honestly scares the s**t out of me. Floor nursing is easy. Everyone for the most part is stable and you know what to expect. The ER is a living, constantly changing thing. People's statuses can change at the drop of a hat and you have to know you're s**t or someone might die.

I love nursing but the more I think about it, the more I'm scared that I'm going to be in charge of people's lives. I will be responsible for making sure they don't die. Ugh....
