I am so excited about this Case Study because I feel it will be useful to so many of you! Welcome to a new Case Study in which the patient, a 45-yr-old, white, premenopausal woman, presents for her annual exam with a small lump in her breast that has grown in size over the last few weeks.

Where is the incentive to work during this time!? I'm not in it for just the money ... but I am burnt out from the increased workload ... The government can't even give us hazard pay or even a measly tax break.
Coworkers are all nosy asking me how I managed to get my job. Then I hear them commenting saying how I get more shifts than nurses who are more senior than I am. What?! Really?! I'm starting to feel offended and not wanted. 😥
How does everyone handles when a patient wants to talk about politics. I typically try to redirect the subject back to the care I am providing. Anyone have any good tactics since this is a topic that just won’t go away?
