How the heck do I survive the daily stress in nursing? Let us overcome most of these stressors starting today. I am the voice of all the nurses who dread getting up and going to work; the voice of every single one who feels as if their blood pressure is running on high all too often. That voice, the one inside that says 'I'm going to quit this job any day now I swear I am.' The voice of those nurses who have conformed to the stress but wish that their environment could change for the better.
