Nurse dating doctor blog
I’ve been nagging Richard to see a dermatologist about a rash (since he’s not specialized in this), but he stubbornly refuses to go. You Need to Make Time to Date Residents work an insane amount of hours.Before the cap in 2003, residents sometimes worked 136 hours per week. With moonlighting included, Richard sometimes works up to 100 hours per week.On top of their day job, they also have to read volumes upon volumes of medical journals to keep up with their profession.They’re always striving to become more educated and thus, better doctors. They make great mentors, with Richard being my #1 supporter. But It’s Worth It I’m definitely not dating Richard for the prestige or paycheck of a doctor.
Many studies and literature reviews have touched upon the dynamics of the doctor-nurse relationship in a hospital setting (see here, here and here for more on this).
I want to be by Richard’s side and support him through residency, because god knows it’s tiring, back-breaking work that is just plain shitty.
He often tells me how happy he is to return to a clean home, warm meal, and me in the doorway–and I think that makes residency all the more bearable for him.
You Still Have to Go to the Doctor The nice part about dating a doctor is, well, always having a doctor around.
With healthcare being so dreadfully expensive in the United States, it’s great to have Richard nearby and give me the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in regard to whether I really need to go to the doctor’s office.
Basically, this means I never see him—and when I do, he’s half asleep.
