Many times, every time I burn out I start thinking about doing other things. Computers, artist, musician, anything self employeed appealed to me in the past. When I'm really tired and sick of it all.... I look at the guy sweeping the McD's parking lot with a longing desire to only be responsible for the mundane task of sweeping a floor. Just lollying along with a broom. LOL. Seriously, I do feel that way at the time, but when I reach deep, I decide I love nursing, or atleast the intent of nursing. Anytime I compare other jobs, they all come up short in one area or another, too mundane, not challenging enough, too repeatative, don't want to sit all day, don't want to stand all day, not enough contact with people, no hands on caring of people. I like the level of comfort that comes with years of nursing and the knowledge that I have to share with others. I am an expert in my choosen profession and in no others. I think that what has really kept me going in nsg is that anytime I get burnt or fell I need a change, I can and do change. I have had many different roles, titles and responsabilities through out my career. I have worked in many different diciplines in nsg. It is one of my favorite parts of nursing. The opportunity to do so many differerent jobs in so many different areas while using the skills and level of knowlege that we posses as nurses.
