man there’s been a lot of talk about how nurses are acutely suffering during COVID times but almost no one -- including and especially hospital administrators -- seem to grasp how royally this is going to fuck everyone over after COVID for years and years to come. experienced nurses don’t grow on trees! burnout, depression, compassion fatigue, and trauma are near universal, half the nurses and doctors I know crack jokes about how “it’s not a drinking problem, it’s a drinking habit!”, and the only thing anyone is talking about is “how can we leave here” -- travel nursing, retirement, cushy outpatient private practice. why break your soul working inpatient when you could get paid x4 your current rate to inject rich housewives with botox? anyone who’s got the credentials and experience to do so is jumping ship while they still can. like hey, anti-vaxxer, you survived COVID but end up in the CVICU for a massive heart attack five years from now. fantastic, your treatment team will be one divorced veteran nurse with PTSD who hates everyone now and the three junior nurses with borderline alcoholism and chronic workplace back injuries whose nursing skills all come from virtual simulations and preceptors showing them workarounds because no one had time to actually do anything properly. and everyone, including people who are pro-vaxx, who are as sick as I am with our fellow citizens’ bullshit, seems to think that once COVID goes away, the healthcare workforce will snap back to where it was before late 2019, and it won’t!!! you will be seeing the effects of COVID in our healthcare system for decades to come, and they will be bad.
