    I’m in a medsurg unit and it’s true, I’m over it 9 months in.

  2. Sarah Sexton on April 19, 2020 at 9:58 am

    I graduated in December 2018, and already feeling burnt out at my for profit acute inpatient rehab job. Constantly short staffed with more and more expectations added every shift. I’m looking for a community health job too. I’ve always wanted to have my own women’s health clinic in the future for disadvantaged women. I relate so much to everything you said. Preach! 🙌🏼

  3. Noelle Gilchrist on April 19, 2020 at 10:00 am

    I believe in divine timing prayer manifestation all of it! I know I’m late but I just put it in my resignation for a job I’ve been at 4 years med surg tele at hospital I didn’t feel like me anymore even considering leaving nursing altogether but my goal is to be an NP. I understand all you’ve said in this video it’s driving and you do feel under appreciated and definitely underpaid. I want to do women’s health and become a women’s health NP problem is my background is med sug so all I’m being offered is med sug positions……..but I believe God will align my next career move that’ll change my career and focus back to why I became a nurse blessings to you and your career

  4. Tateana Michelle TV on April 19, 2020 at 10:01 am

    I just subbed to you lastnight and watching all your videos. I’m thinking about doing nursing.. I’ve been a Patient Care Technician for 6 yrs and I feel like if I’m going to continue doing this I might as well go back to school and be a nurse. BUT… being a tech honestly make me not want to be a nurse.. But hearing your story show me that you were a great nurse, u wanted to be hands on vs documenting..on my unit it’s like they enjoy not helping patients and putting all the work on Techs. But its always good to know you can do other things besides bedside.. Thanks for being so real and honest, happy I came across your channel.

  5. jasmin reyes on April 19, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Thank you so much for sharing this
    I’m just beginning this new journey and I have a long way to go but the fact that you share your own experiences and all is definitely helping/guiding many of us who are considering becoming RNs 😘

  6. doogieRN1 on April 19, 2020 at 10:06 am

    Contracts!! Have to pay back the hospital….WHAT!! What is going on, that is so eh hum… I never heard of anything like that. Fatima girl….right @GourJessJay!! Working under contract and if you want to leave, I gotta pay the hospital back and I am knee or neck deep in debt from financial aid and loans if you did not get any grants or scholarships!

  7. Lili Da on April 19, 2020 at 10:07 am

    I honestly want to take a break too. I’m too scared to quit because finding another job with a job is even difficult.

  8. Danny Nguyen on April 19, 2020 at 10:08 am

    Quit it. Nursing is only for losers.

  9. Martika Macon on April 19, 2020 at 10:10 am

    I’m new to your channel and absolutely love your videos. I really felt this video! I am hoping to get into the nursing program next year. Not sure what field I want to get into once I get my degree but I definitely know I do not want to work in the hospital. I worked at a hospital as a phlebotomist and hated it. I also saw what a nurse had to deal with in the hospital. They were always running, and they definitely didn’t get the appreciation that they deserved. There is so much you can do with a nursing degree, therefore I know I’m bound to find something I like! Good luck with your career!!!!!

  10. N Wilson on April 19, 2020 at 10:10 am

    Girl your so right. In Canada the nursing unions seem to propel the notion that nurses get paid so well and it’s a great job. Every nurse I know retreats choosing that profession, including myself, had we known the negative and often toxic work environments nurses work at. Not to mention insane work loads that are unsafe with no support from management and underpaid.

  11. Mina Muhammad on April 19, 2020 at 10:12 am

    This video is speaking to my soul!! Thank you for this video, it is much appreciated. I can attest to every single point you made, down to the contracts, I just completed a 2 year ER one. And let me tell you it was a long dreadful experience. The fact of not being able to leave until the contract was done was not a good feeling. I am currently experiencing what you were after your year in ICU….. a crossroad as to what to do in nursing, my career/life. I have always want to be a nurse since a kid, then become an NP. But it’s no longer speaking to me (the traditional track) or bedside nursing. This video help be feel this there is hope at the end. I’m in a state of learning to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. So I can think outside of that traditional track box. I have always wanted to explore other things beside nursing even as a kid. And more recently them desires are becoming louder and not just background noise. As you stated "Once a nurse, you will always be a nurse." But I dont know if bedside nursing is for me anymore.

  12. lila martin on April 19, 2020 at 10:12 am

    How old is she ?

  13. eritreasunshine on April 19, 2020 at 10:12 am

    As a CNA I definitely feel under appreciated-most of the nurses I have worked with are great but boy, smh but some can be sooo lazy?!

  14. Nursebutler_ on April 19, 2020 at 10:13 am

    Never mind the talk sis. Keep doing you boo 🥰

  15. Happiness on April 19, 2020 at 10:14 am

    Hi Fatima. Kinda of off topic, but could you make a video on how to start investmemts (stocks, real estate)?

  16. Jennifer Hodge on April 19, 2020 at 10:15 am

    Where did she buy her necklace? Love it! Does she cell it? 😁💗😁

  17. kaneda lac on April 19, 2020 at 10:15 am

    i love you.

  18. Mellonee Edgeston on April 19, 2020 at 10:17 am

    Great video as always I’m binge watching all your videos/ vlogs right now so I can caught up to your recent vlogs can’t wait until I’m all caught up. I love how honest and real that you are about everything.

  19. Ama Munoz on April 19, 2020 at 10:17 am

    I agree with you! RN are truly underpaid for all that we do…Love it girl

  20. LifeofKat on April 19, 2020 at 10:17 am

    Sis you speaking all facts! I haven’t worked in a hospital yet but have worked in nursing homes. And I felt everything you said.

  21. Mya W on April 19, 2020 at 10:18 am

    I feel like the issue with bedside job after getting a RN or a BSN degree is lack of experience. It is such a big step to work in a hospital with lack of career experience. I rather work in a clinical or somewhere small. As a side hustle I will get a certificate as a phetombley technician. Somewhere small in the health care that correlate with my career and possibly will help me have additional knowledge to my career.

  22. prema tete on April 19, 2020 at 10:21 am

    I truly agree😥

  23. Maya Hajj on April 19, 2020 at 10:22 am

    I feel this to my core I was so exhausted and burned out when I was at the bedside. I have only been a nurse for two years but landed a job at an advanced practice for metabolics and functional medicine over the summer. I want to become a clinical nurse specialist and really make an impact as a nurse. It’s so sad all these young girls are becoming nurses getting worked so hard. It’s emotionally tolling and damaging as well. Congrats on staying true to yourself. Leaving the bedside was so hard for me but SO damn freeing! Cheers to NURSE POWER!

  24. oyunadawa lokiyisangkim on April 19, 2020 at 10:23 am

    i knew about contracts but didnt know there was a bailout that much or any bailout. wow.

  25. Jasmine Holder on April 19, 2020 at 10:25 am

    I NEVER did med surg when I graduated. I knew from the get go I was not going to like it especially during clinical. The beauty with nursing is you have a choice of what you wanna do and where you wanna go. I always liked psych so I started there instead and never looked back.

  26. beebee rn on April 19, 2020 at 10:25 am

    I’m currently transitioning to leaving the bed side as a RN, I just interviewed today for a new job, my problem is the hours (12 hour shifts), underappreciated and the pay, I love nursing but it can be very stressful at times.

  27. anna guzman on April 19, 2020 at 10:25 am

    None of this is lies at all I agree with absolutely everything you said! Thanks for this video I thought I was the only one who felt like this.

  28. Adrian Jr on April 19, 2020 at 10:27 am

    I started in the icu as a new grad too & eventually left. Now I’m trying to figure out what to do. I’m 25 and Idk if I want to stay in nursing or pursue firefighting.

  29. Saudia Camille on April 19, 2020 at 10:27 am

    Sooo true about charting! I do not enjoy the hospital setting. I am a new nurse of only 5 months and I am already looking for something smaller.

  30. Mishelle Toledo on April 19, 2020 at 10:27 am

    whats your favorite field in nursing?

  31. Anna Cadwell on April 19, 2020 at 10:29 am

    Here i am a low paying accountant thinking about nursing well… i see why everyone is becoming their own bosses.

  32. LaKesha Harris on April 19, 2020 at 10:31 am

    Thanks for the information Fatima

  33. Carole Michael on April 19, 2020 at 10:35 am

    Is bedside nursing basically an rn?

  34. Bibata Sankara on April 19, 2020 at 10:36 am

    😥😥😥 Idk but I need some serious serious help rn. my life is in absolute shambles. I just started nursing. I chose a float department because that’s where I was as a pca. second week and i absolutely hate it. idk why I did this to myself. I thought I would le it and get through it but no, I can’t do this anymore. I can’t believe I wasted all this money, these loans on this. I love caring for people but not this. bedside nursing is much more than caring for others. I just want to atleast like my job and feel that im ok. some will say give it time, etc but no i literally can’t and I don’t know what to do😥. I put sooo much intothis. i know I’m not the only one who goes through this but I feel like it’s just better to end my life at this point.

  35. maan on April 19, 2020 at 10:36 am

    I’ve been a bedside nurse for 14 yrs and just recently transferred to PACU. Best decision ever! Anyway, months ago I was trying to insert a cannula to a patient and I said sorry for poking him, he said "you guys say sorry more than you are being thanked for, so thank you". I’m going to miss these kind of moments doing bedside nursing.

  36. T G on April 19, 2020 at 10:36 am

    I’m so depressed as a med surg nurse… I just always feel defeated

  37. janeese carmona on April 19, 2020 at 10:36 am

    I wanna be a community health nurse so bad but I have no idea how to get there or how to make connections. Any help anyone?

  38. Naurae ™ on April 19, 2020 at 10:38 am

    Can you become an np without having hospital setting experience?

  39. tierra williams on April 19, 2020 at 10:39 am

    Yes I signed a 3yr contract with my hospital for the sign-on bonus! 😩😩😩😩 I hate I did it. (I’m not even going to speak on how they tax it) 🙄🙄🙄🙄 The only reason I did it was because I knew I could move around within the hospital. I HATE how the hospital boxes us in. I just transitioned to NICU & I had to sign a 2yr contract. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 I have commitment issues & I have no problem jumping ship 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 I love my freedom, flexible & individuality I’m just ready to knock out these 2yrs & move on to other things also. Like u, I have many different interest & I love that abt me & nursing/healthcare! I do fundraisers for my community annually. So, I believe I would enjoy community nursing as well but I’m leaning more towards being an OR nurse, specifically plastic surgery. I’m still up in the air abt NP school. Bedside nursing is enough responsiblity on it’s own lol! I get burnt out with school. I just completed my RN-BSN this past December. Ik God has many great things in store for me so I continue to press on! U definitely inspire me! S/o to u & ur accomplishments!🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾💯💯💯

  40. LaKesha Harris on April 19, 2020 at 10:44 am

    That’s right Fatima, we think alike if they aren’t appreciating us we gotta go. I believe in the divine flow if it doesn’t flow it must go.

  41. Giezel Degoma-Distor on April 19, 2020 at 10:46 am

    So true been a bedside nurse since i started my career and its nit giving me a life. Politics are really true

  42. Martha Matamoros on April 19, 2020 at 10:47 am

    I love watching your videos girl all your videos speak to me , thank you!

  43. April Archer on April 19, 2020 at 10:49 am

    Omg, I completely agree on how bedside nurses are so liable and are working at high anxiety every single shift with no support or growth. You feel like you are loosing your shit sometimes because you are responsible for every single thing. Thankless work, always demanding more and more, it’s never enough. Horrible assignments, patients are always at risk with short staffing and expedite discharges from doctors! Get them in and get them out even if they are not stable! I can’t handle that, that is not how you treat patients! That is awesome that you actually made it happen and let go of the job that didn’t make you happy. I’m still scared to leave because I just feel stuck in this situation.

  44. Essie on April 19, 2020 at 10:49 am

    I always “wanted to be a nurse” but i felt like that was pressure from my mom telling me i should be a nurse. So my sophomore year in high school i volunteered at a local hospital and i absolutely HATED it. I don’t know if it was the people or the hospital i worked in but it was just terrible. The way the nurses were talked to was just terrible (and i have a hot mouth aka i talk back), and i feel like nurses especially in a hospital have so many patients at one time there isn’t a one on connection and i wanted to work with people and get them to feel better. So that’s when i was like “maybe nursing isn’t for me” so then my junior year in high school i took an ap psychology class and i fell in love with the topic and that’s when i knew i wanted to become a therapist. Like when you feel like you are destined to do something you just feel it inside that you are meant to do it. Now, i’m a rising senior in high school and plan to major in social work and get my masters in social work so i can become a licensed clinical social worker and work with teens that have depression, anxiety, and eating disorders❤️. I’m glad that I was given the opportunity to work and see that maybe this field isn’t for me before i wasted so much money doing something i didn’t want to do. So my tips to people is that you’ll eventually figure out what you wanna do just sit back and evaluate yourself ❤️

  45. Graham Jones on April 19, 2020 at 10:50 am

    Thanks for bringing awareness. I am glad you are talking about your experiences. I agree with you.These videos are not mean’t to discourage those that feel fine with it all. It is all subjective. Someone else’s idea of hell may be someone else’s idea of a thrilling challenge. However, we cannot all be crazy if a good percentage of nurses feel overwhelmed.

  46. African Beauty on April 19, 2020 at 10:51 am

    After my last wk shift I felt unappreciated and cried my way home!!! After 10 years of bedside nursing im done!!

  47. CuteBitties on April 19, 2020 at 10:53 am

    How do you feel about new grads going straight into a nontraditional nursing jobs initially. Do you feel your 1 year of experience in the icu helped you as a community nurse? Do you feel a new grad with prior non nursing clinical healthcare experience experience in outpatient be able to start initially in a clinic as a new grad?

  48. Sylvia Peace on April 19, 2020 at 10:53 am

    It may be your responsibility but you don’t take accountability which is a bigger responsibility of the job needed to be done…overall you can’t take accountability for other people’s job…you won’t get most of the blame for others fault trust me

  49. pinkyb91 on April 19, 2020 at 10:53 am

    Im a nurse and bedside nursing is super hard

  50. Marina Syndulla on April 19, 2020 at 10:53 am

    After nursing school I went to be a mental health nurse. No way in hell was I doing med surg. During clinicals I’ve seen what those nurses have to endure. no lol
