So tomorrow I finish my job on the ward. If I think about when I started, I have learnt SO much but I think I’ve also become a little hardened when listening to suicidal ideations. However, I think, it’s made me a better nurse. I’ve been able to keep my clients safe and none of have completed suicide upon discharge (but it’ll happen one day, let’s be realistic)
The person I cherish and will miss the most is the consultant psychiatrist, he has opened my eyes in the world of diagnosis and treatment. These are the foundations for the rest of my career and I’ve gotten a better head start than most.
I’m going to miss the staff so much, but I’m moving to a new job with th learning disability team for new challenges.
