Yes, the obvious can be somewhat tough to handle. We nurses ARE overwhelmed. Yes, we nurses do get that "I want to quit" feeling QUITE often.
In the state of the nursing world, a shortage of nurses, is slowly turning into a shortage of time. Time needed to train, educate and properly orient those who are just entering our world.
Hitting the ground running and biting off more than you can chew is now the norm.
The question is, how much longer is this going to last.
Sometimes a passion for your career isn’t enough.
My hope is that we can nurture our newest additions to the world of nursing so that they won’t want to quit.
