That is really good advice. Actually, I've been working in hospitals all year long - I'm a nursing student. I am going to try to continue working through the summer, but I am not taking classes, I know I need the break.
I have found that working with patients can be highly rewarding work. This past quarter I've been working on an obstetrics floor and taking care of all those new babies and families has probably been the only reason I made it this far.
Thank you for your advice, too. I'm trying, but today was one of those overwhelming days, you know?
Thank you both for your advice, it's nice to know that it looks like I'm on the right track. It can be hard to judge that for yourself sometimes.
