I love my job.
I love days like this when I leave work knowing I was able to help someone feel better, breathe better, get well faster, fix an issue. I love it that my job provides satisfaction on so many levels. I really though that eventually, I would burn out on nursing if I did it long enough. Not the case here.
Maybe it's because I don't allow myself to get bored. Maybe that's why I sign up to work in different areas. That way I rotate and stay fresh. It's still exciting after all these years, no matter how calm I look while I'm doing the work.
That's why I need to go back to school. I need to broaden my knowledge base. Just in case somewhere along the line it isn't fun anymore.
But in the meantime..........It's still fun. And I'm enjoying every minute of it.
