Im a newer FNP and I just have to say family and friend have ask me how my new job is going. Do I like it better? Oh it must be easier than working bedside and in the hospital. But Im just gonna say...It is mentally exhausting. I question everything. I look up doses twice. I work in an urgent care and some patients I dont know if I need to work them up or send them to the ER. Then if I sent them to the ER, once I think about it some more and I dont want the ER to think Im stupid, Im like may be I couldve done more here, but when you suspect an appendicitis vs pyelo vs kidney stone and we dont have advanced imaging, what elses can I do but get a UA! Then I feel bad cause they pay a co pay just for me to say "Go to the ER" I know theres no easy answer. I know it takes time. I just wanted to vent.
