I am new student that is going to start an RN program this fall. My mother is a nurse, and although I don't like to admit it she is burnt out. She says that she can't deal with the patient's anymore and there family. I love medicine and the nursing field but, people is a whole other story. Yes, I like people in general but people can generally be annoying and/or there family. I do want to get harassed by work with patient request (small request are fine) or be hassled by the patients family (unless its a small favor). My opinion might be biased from my mother's perspective.
The second question I have is all to the older NPs and RNs have you ever got burnout, what was your cause? Did you ever get to resolve it? If so please share!
