Nursing is a very challenging and demanding career, however I feel the rewards have been great and that my education has thoroughly prepared me to embark on this career. I really enjoy being able to help and care for people, and the field of nursing allows me to connect with patients on a personal and in-depth level that appeals to me greatly and drew me to this field over a decade ago.
I have always believed that one will reap the benefits from how hard one is willing to work, but that is not always the case. I am a settled immigrant in Canada with the expectation of changing my life and future. Stress were I came from was high because work and resources were not readily available and I relocated to make a change in my environment. I worked long days over 40 hours a week which required me to stand the entire time. I expected that I would live better than where I came from, but that was not the case. Stress is excessively high at home and works because I have not been able to meet the ends of my demands. Social detriments plays a big role in my overall work experience has definitely had some negative impacts my overall well-being.
