    A Lot Less Hand Holding Than I Thought

    This job is a lot less hand-holding than I thought. A lot less pillow-fluffing than I thought. More griping, More fatigue, More frustration than I thought. I want to be a great nurse to you and seven other patients too. But I feel like I don't have enough time for all of you. If I don't bring your pain medications exactly when their due, Or your water, or your juice, It's not that I'm ignoring you, It's just that other people need me too. I try to balance all of you and balance me too. I am still learning. I am still.... It's just that this job is a lot less hand-holding than I thought. A lot less pillow-fluffing than I thought. More griping, More fatigue, More frustration than I thought. A little poetry/prose written by myself in hopes of expressing some feelings I have currently as I explore my new role as a bed-side nurse. Thanks.
