The nursing profession is not all beer and skittles. One moment you’re dealing with a grumpy doctor and the next thing you know, a demanding patient (not including the relatives) is passionately yelling at you.
The roller coaster of emotions you deal with at work can easily burn you out. And if you’re not careful, you may end up leaving the profession.
Now, before you do that, breathe in, breathe out and take these 12 funny nurses quotes by heart:

When I eat too much dessert, I don’t post about it on facebook. If it isn’t charted, it didn’t happen.
