Burnout occurs in nursing. Acceptance of this fact is important. Do NOT allow it to discourage you from pursuing the profession.
I suffered burnout as a MOM, but would NEVER trade that profession for anything else. I LOVED raising my children, and would do it all over again if given that opportunity.
In nursing, you recognize your limitations, respect those limitations, and give as passionately as you are able to the profession. If you can do this, then you have given the BEST of yourself in any given day's work as a nurse. At the end of that day, evening, or night shift...clock out, take some deep breaths, and leave it behind you when you pass through the EXIT door. Go home and love yourself and your family completely during your off hours. I wish you the best in your endeavors of becoming a nurse. Then, after you become a nurse, know when to "clock out" from the job, and "clock in" to life outside of work. :kiss
