How are you celebrating this week's International Nurses Day?


i wrote the 1st comment... & in response to 9th may 11:30 pm you are right, and i am considering different careers/a different ward as i re-create my life. unfortunately i feel like i do because of the -ve aspects of the job which have steadily outweighed the +ve's in the past 2 years leaving me bitter towards the idea of celebrating my current situation. There are many fabulous reasons i became a nurse and remain a nurse, but perhaps nursing is no longer for me. I stand by my comments and although realise they are -ve and unbalanced, they are true and my comment was venting my response to the title of this article. unfortunately i know i am not alone and my thoughts are with the other nurses in similar or worse situations whose nursing spirit (& therefore spirits) have been broken.
