Why bother?

Welcome to NursingHabits.com

Follow my blog if you are thinking of a career in nursing, if you are a nurse, or if your mother’s a nurse and you want to know why she swears so much. You don’t even need to be affiliated with nursing or nurses – the medical world is everyones business! I assure you that you will be tickled queasy!

Follow my blog if you’ve just graduated from high school and the pressure is on to choose a career. Nursing Habits tells you exactly what’s wrong with putting your passion on hold! I will tell you about the ups and downs of nursing if it’s one of the careers you’re considering and the downs of trying to forge a passion in a career you never should have pursued…

I am not here to bash nursing as a profession. I am here mostly to give you an insightful and funny peek into a truly life-altering career. Nursing TOTALLY ROCKS while it manages to TOTALLY SUCK all at once.

It wasn’t long before the abuse from our South African government and the ever increasing patient nurse ratio (which is a crazy 33 patients to 2 nurses most of the time) pushed me to a quick burn out. I wasn’t happy, I was dragging myself to work everyday and my knees and elbows took a good scraping. The patients were too many to handle and it hurt me physically, emotionally, psychologically. I couldn’t take much of it anymore, so I decided to turn my hobby “Web and Graphics Design” into a full-time career.

The purpose of my blog is to help nurses ease/prevent burnout through creativity and any other means possible. It’s important that nurses realize the true potential of the internet. Turning a creative hobby into a source of income is very possible these days and I’d like to show you how! This empowers nurses to have the freedom to leave nursing should they reach a point of irreversible burnout like I did.
