What nurses are saying about their workplace

“The more patients you have, the less you can care for them. If I have seven patients, from one hall down to the other end of the hall, call bells ringing off, they want their pain meds, they’re nauseated, they need to go to the bathroom, like how can I split myself into all these patients’ rooms?”

“We hardly have a shift now where we have enough staff. We have been having trouble recruiting staff, and we've been having trouble getting casuals to work. We are feeling burnt out . . . every time we go into a shift, it’s just dread.”

“It dampens your spirits going to work, knowing you're going to work short and you're probably going to not leave at the time you're supposed to leave.”

“We feel guilty for leaving our colleagues in an unsafe situation, so we stay and we continue to work in that unsafe situation, and then experience the guilt of then having left our families, another soccer practice without Mom in the seat.”

“I've trained critical care nurses and within six months to two years of them hiring, I've already been asked for multiple references for positions that are contract work or travel work outside of the province. If government and employers are willing to pay agency rates of double or triple the salary of their current staff, why is it so hard for them to pay their regular staff?"

"Right now, you walk into work, you're usually supposed to have, you know, one nurse, four or five patients, and you end up having 8 to 10 patients. It's not humanly possible to continue to work that.”

“Some times you don't really plan to be here overnight because you are not an overnight nurse. You were just an evening nurse. And now you're here all night long. Then you come in for your next shift and you're tired…imagine if you've been in a lot of those shifts in a row, how would you replenish yourself?”

“With the nursing profession the way that it is right now, conversations around changing careers happen on a regular basis.”

“With an aging population that we have and with the lack of access to family doctors or nurse practitioners, the patients that we're getting are coming much sicker because they can't get to see a family doctor to get things addressed.”

"Will I be able to work till I’m 65 and put in an honest career in nursing, or will I be burnt out very quickly and scared into doing a different line of profession outside of the bedside, or changing careers altogether? As I’ve been hearing many young people doing that, it’s very scary, and it causes uncertainty.”
