Almost 2 years ago I had just started my nursing career. I got my BSN in 2015 got my RN license shortly after graduating and had started my first floor job on an acute care floor as an RN. I was really excited when I started out but 6 months in i was absoleutly miserable and burnt out. I made a post 2 years ago
Don't like nursing at all, what can I do with my BSN?
Asking the community what or where I can go with a BSN and only 6 months of actual RN experience. Many of you posted giving me advice and where to look in to etc but I had made the official choice of leaving nursing. I didn't leave the medical field I actually ended up applying to PA school and shockingly got accepted. I love the medical field but the nursing area just wasn't for for me. I'm glad to say I will be graduating from PA school this spring 2018 and already got a great job offer lined up with a great medical group here at one of the premiere hospitals in my state state.
I just want to say thank you for every thing all you RNs do each and every day. I couldn't cut it as a RN and it's an area i highly respect and have a great deal of respect for. It's a very labor intensive job and very draining and i will always carry the respect I have for each of you as I move on with my career as a provider.
To anyone who is also at that point where I was 2 years ago where nursing just didn't fit at all and you are looking at other options I highly recommend PA school.
Anyway thank you everyone for all that you do, I sure as heck couldn't cut it. Pretty sure if other providers also walked in our shoes for 1 day they too would have more respect for all RNs.
