What is the most stressful thing about being a nurse?

Updated Canada

Nurses are said to be the hearts of the hospital but I've been told many times that they have to undergo tremendous amounts of stress. What causes all this stress? And how tough do you have to be to work through it? #nursing #nurse #stress #healthcare #medicine #career

I love taking care of people, especially the elderly. The most stressful part is paperwork, it takes away from 1 on 1 time with my residents. Also incompetent nurses/management, I think of my residents as my family. And when I find errors or ethical issues and management doesn't fix the problem, I struggle with that. I just try to take care of my residents to the best of my ability and try and prevent anything bad from happening.
