Are there any nursing specialties for people who don't like too much human interaction?
Maybe working alone is impossible, but maybe instead work in a small, more relaxed team environment?
I thought about being a night nurse, but I heard nights are even more hectic than mornings.
With coworkers, I mean. Not patients. I love my patients. I know this may sound silly; especially considering how I worded it and because obviously nursing is a people person career and you usually work in a close knit team setting.
I work as a CNA now and I notice how some people clash with other coworkers and some people think they are the boss and love delegating tasks. They seem to be more focused on the "power struggle" and "getting back" at co-workers they don't like by having them do the harder work. I would like to work somewhere without someone breathing down my neck 24/7 or little to no drama. I just want to do my work, please the patients, report to management whenever necessary, and go home.
In the CNA/care giver field, I noticed there are certain positions that require less interaction with others than working at certain nursing homes or assisted living facilities so I was wondering if it was the same for nursing.
