Nursing is tough. I could elaborate, but for now that one sentence encompasses what we all are feeling. From long shifts, to missed holidays. From full bladders, to unintentional intermittent fasting. Our shifts aren’t always pleasant. Sometimes we just need to hear from and laugh with people who understand the intricacies of our profession. Below, see 5 nurse accounts that will make you laugh, think, explore, plan, and appreciate.
