does anyone regret this career? - page 12

just curious. I regret it every single day. I had good intentions when I started, and I wasn't idealistic either. But it is a FAR worse job than I imagined. I feel like the life has been beaten out of me. I consider myself... Read More

    I regret going into nursing...not quite what I thought it would be. With the change in politics and this nonsense value-based healthcare, etc.

    Im actually debating switching to a new career. Something I wont get sued for doing my job for, something I wont go to jail for if I mess up, etc...

    Currently a pre-nursing student. I've read every post on this page. I keep hearing the possibility of being sued/going to jail. Can a nurse elaborate a bit more on that? Or direct me to a thread?

    Thanks!

    No. But I was careful before I even went to nursing school. I did a lot of volunteer work in the health field and I did work as a home care aide and took a cna course, because I wanted to make sure. I also was very careful which job I picked. I don't do 12 hours, I do afternoons so I can sleep in, and I have very supportive supervisors.
