I love psych nursing, don’t get me wrong, but… I’m jealous of pediatrics!
In psych nursing, we get boundaries, lots of boundaries. Such boundaries! If I went and married one of my patients – gad zooks! The scandal! The meetings! (I’d also have to deal with my current wife, polygamy laws, reporters, finding a new job and who knows what else but that’s all beside the point)
But peds nurses have an entirely different set of standards and expectations. How do I know? Would you like to see my proof? Would you like a warm fuzzy moment? If so, watch this quick video evidence: a nurse clearly marrying a patient – at work no less!
What else do they get to do?
I want to know!
