Joy, the distress of which you spoke, I have found not only with RN’s but also with the MD’s.  Many changes occur in health care.  I am often reminded it is a theory of practice that hopes to make life better.  One person I know shared a story like you shared that the trauma of growing up neglected and abused inspired this person to become a healthcare professional.  But the treat of the pandemic triggered past threats causing this person to reach out for additional support, allowing this person to be vulnerable, to provide good support and care to glean additional coping skills to hear how valuable their call to health care is and the change this person really does make in the lives of others helps to calm the triggers down to gradually reframe that traumatized brain.
