Their Job is Extremely Stressful
It’s shocking that some people still don’t realize just how stressful a nurse’s job is. It’s worse when they have the audacity to point out the same to their nurses. This patient actually had the nerve to tell his nurse that he doesn’t think her job is as stressful as his job of being a truck driver because all she does is take his blood pressure.
The fact that she’s assessing other things about his health, doing the same for other patients, and trying to keep it together while knowing that one of her patients may not make it is apparently not stressful enough. Okay, then.
