My first nursing experience...I was working in a group home for teen mothers and babies. It was hard at first because these babies needed to be loved and so did the mothers. But, because of their hate and hostility it was very hard in the beginning. The care, attention and love that the staff tried to give was hard to accept at first becasue this is what the teens should have been receiving from their own parents and family. I twas a hard start as a new nurse. Once I learned NOT to tke things personally, it became easier. I was able to teach them the things they THOUGHT they knew and show them how to do things the right way. At the end of the day, it was all appreciated, may be not by all, but if you cn just help ONE, then you have done something.
