Myth: Nursing is an easy job; anyone can do it.
Truth: Nursing is a very challenging profession and can take its toll: emotionally and/or physically on the nurse. Working 12-hr shifts on your feet for long periods of time can be physically exhausting. Connecting with patients and families emotionally during a difficult time can be draining. Nursing isn’t an easy job but it is an incredibly rewarding career.
