I started working as a tech in May of this year, I'm still new to the field. I have my CNA license, EKG Certificate, and phlebotomy license and will be applying for RN school shortly. I really do like my job and most of the patients,but I'm tired of being so anxious before work, and doing the same thing day after day after day, it is very repetitious. And as PCTs in my facility you have a lot on your shoulders, you don't only have your 3-4 pt assignment but usually try to help the RNs with their assignments too, but now you have the do the water room and more. I love the dialysis field but need more of a change daily, which is why I want to do acutes as an RN. I leave 5Am and my mother has to come watch my son and bring him to school for me, it's a lot of hassle because the only shifts they give are 6-5. My point is while I like dialysis I'm finding it near impossible to live my life. My husband works the same hours but he makes more than double what I do so it's not possible for him to do something else. If I want another child I'll never be able to work those hours any more . I feel like I've put so much time and energy into this job but I'm already tired of doing the same thing every single shift. What do you think?
