I have been a nurse for 12 years, and have watched as the profession has become less and less desirable to stay in. How can we encourage others to be nurses I have watched patients suffer due to a lack of nursing care. Not because nurses don\'t know what to do, on the contrary, we do and that is the problem. Whatever happened to backrubs as a means to add to patient comfort How many times are we reprimanded by doctors or employers because something was not done For instance, a dressing change, or a pain med not given because the nurse didn\'t have time to stop right then and give it, or something major happens, like a new patient, a patient goes bad and the nurse forgets How many times are we to blame if it is an hour later How can you ask another nurse, if they are overwhelmed themselves Do we have superhuman tacked on our forehead We are patient advocates, doctors doormats and just another employee.
