I’m a nurse w 11 years experience but only 1 1/2 years working in the field of addiction crisis. I love my job and I love my clients. I don’t think the public understands the level of critical thinking required to even sit for the boards let alone succeed on the floor. We don’t just take an order blindly. We assess the patient. Document our findongs. Then we apply a care plan (which we my recommend). Then the process starts again. We don’t just clean bed pans and pass out pills. We are advocates, scientists and observers. We care for our patients and we fight like hell for their recovery. Every day. All the time.
We are advocates, scientists and observers.
