Have you considered being an independent RN? There are many, many ways to achieve this. Most of what we dislike about bedside nursing is not actually the nursing care, but the politics, people, budget issues, schedulers, managers, etc etc.
I fought burn out for 30+ years by changing my specialty every few years. It's a little scary and some of it was forced upon me by changes in my husband's work, but mostly it worked out.
Education (I have been a qualified nurse educator since 1984) is not an easier option. The stresses and budget issues can be more overwhelming than bedside nursing, pay is not usually up to what one can earn in a high acuity clinical area, promotion structure has it's own problems (think drive to publish, get the Ph.D, tenure track etc) and taking ten raw students to an acute clinical site is a very specific sort of nightmare (and no educator of any caliber teaches what they do not practice!)
Currently I work as an Independent Nurse Provider (INP) for Medi-Cal. My motivation is the control over my own life. I work about 3/4 time, still do something considered valuable to society, maintain clinical skills and am thanked for my work every day. I spend about half a day per month on paperwork related to being an IC.
