"What I love about my job."
Pros: Helping people in need when u receive a patient they left their home for reason I treat them with a smile and assist any help to them.being the patients advocate makes me feel good because I speak on his behalf, make sure they feel safe..theres nothing more heart warming than seeing somebody you have nursed recovering from their worst to excellent, the thank you, saving a life, giving another person hope to see life in different perspective exclude the situation they in presently.
Cons: Sometimes you get rude ungrateful patients, they treat you like rubbish call you all sort of names..but since u can't talk back you have to smile and pretend you never heard whateva they are saying.you get horrible supervisors who are very lazy and want you to practice things that are not in your scope of practice just because they see potential in you if u do it wrong they shout forgetting u not entitled to do that.
