I wish there was a way to be emotionally and mentally prepared to work in the healthcare field. It is hard being around ill patients all of the time, regardless of what your role is. As hard as you try to separate work from your personal life, your emotions don’t always follow suit. Nobody can ever prepare you for the magnitude of emotions of losing a patient, a code blue, working with dementia patients each day. Maybe that is my graduate schools want you to have experience now before applying, so that you know exactly what you are walking into– so you aren’t blindsided. But nonetheless, you are. You try to be strong for your patients, and their families, and keep your emotion in as long as you can. I love my job and the patients I serve, but better mental health awareness needs to be taught in medical, nursing, PA, PT school, etc.
“healthcare workers need help too”
