What is the difficult part of nursing?

Mon Nov 26, 2012 1:11 am

Nursing is a profession that needs people who are strong both emotionally and physically. If you are a weaker person you might want to give it up and choose another career. As a nurse, the most difficult for me is to see babies suffering from diseases. I see their tiny bodies with tubes and needles. I know I should be used to it by now but it still gets to me. How about you, what is the most difficult part of nursing?

It is a never ending cycle and hopefully you tend to protect yourself from the sadness.
