I am a nursing assistant. I have been a nursing assistant since I was 16.
When I was 18 I did a lot of traveling as a Nurses Aide around the tri state area.
 
The money was GREAT!
 
but the job itself was so depressing.
 
I mean when i was taking my course I was so excited because I wanted to have tender moments with the elderly. Like listen to their stories of back in the day. Go shopping, out for lunch. Things that my nursing director said I would be doing.
 
turns out I was getting paid to "take sh*t" literally.
 
If I wasnt wiping it, I was taking it verbally.
 
I was constantly being called a Brotha Man by the rich white elderly folks I was providing care for.
having to lift extrememly heavy people all while their cussing at you to not touch them
 
do all the things that their own families REFUSED to do.
 
Dont get me started on the alzehiemer patients that would kick , spit, bite and here i am having to keep this smile on my face when I really wanna bug out.
 
I cant wait to finish my degree in nursing.
 
Am I the only one that hates my job?

Absolutely not.  I hate my job with a purple passion and I feel that it is beneath me.  Call me conceited, vain, "she thinks she is too good", whatever.  I will gladly claim that title.  I promise you I have restrained myself because if not I would created a thread that would be a non-stop bitch fest of this current job I have.  But meanwhile I have several irons in the oven and this current job will soon be former job.  I guess I learned something about myself in which I hate dealing with people and people tends to be all up in their feeling over the most stupid sh*t.  But guess what Beans, at least you have your youth so make the most of it.  And think of your current position as a temporary situation.  You are not going to be a Nurse's Aide all your life unless you don't do anything to change it and by the looks of it, you are well on your way.  My mom was a nurse and she more or less deals with sh*t from the patients, co-workers, supervisors, etc.  But at least you will be banking and if you make some moves, invest that money to make it work for you and put away something for lil Beans.

I don't get it: why did you stay at a job where you are verbally abused?
Why didn't you tell your boss of the racist things the people were saying? If your boss replied that they are old, and there's nothing they can do, you could have requested him to help you find a job in another nursing home, and tell him to avoid hiring black people.

Life is to be lived, not to suffer.

Unfortunately some folks may not have an option.

I understand that but she was being constantly abused, it was not only the verbal but the physical abuse (spitting in someone may be considered assault).
