From what I hear and see all hospitals, LTC, etc. are all cutting staff and the nurse is taking on more roles and more patients. So we are having to do more with less. I hope we have a change from that direction soon, but I'm not holding my breath. I have seen it change at my hospital over the years and shift back and forth. We got rid of the CNA's at one point all together, then we got them back. Now they are cutting back on them again. I'm just glad that I work with a great group of people that have each other's back when needed. If we didn't work well as a team, I don't think any of us would make it.
Good luck. Glad you were able to quit. Maybe when times change, if they do,you will get back into nursing. I love what I do. I just don't think the top dogs get it.
