Goodness….nursing can be draining

Nurses go through so much all day everyday. I say that because aside from being a mom or dad, daughter or son, husband, wife, or significant other; you are a nurse. That exists 24hrs a day. How many times have you gone home and worried that you may not have done everything for a patient or gotten up to call in to ask questions about documentation? I know I have and that’s pretty much how my mind operates. It’s constantly thinking about how to advocate for the patients, how to increase access of care, all the political uprising that’s taken place since the new election. All these affect nurses mentally, physically, and emotionally. What are your thoughts? How can we alleviate some of the stressors that we face on a day to day basis as nurses?

I am an RN working on my DNP, preparing to launch several aspects of my new business and writing and getting ready to publish my first book. I love to write so blogging seemed like a great way to naturally express myself and publish my journey as a nurse.
