I recently graduated from nursing school
and started working two months ago. It started out great but went downhill quickly from there. Thinking about work now makes me feel sick to point where I can't do anything except cry all day on my days off. I cry on my way to work and even pray that I get into a car reck so I don't have to go. I work with very sick patients and have lost a few during the two months I have been working. I have supportive co-workers but I feel alone due to the heavy patient load and feel like I'm drowning. I would rather be happier dead than being a nurse anymore. I want to leave nursing and the healthcare field for good but with no experience and too much student loan debt, I feel trapped. Please help me, are there any non-health related fields that I can use my nursing degree for? I would be ok with getting a lower salary. I need to leave nursing because what I'm feeling is not normal and I've never felt so depressed. Thanks in advance for all your help.
