I have come to a real conclusion. I just don't like nursing. I kept telling myself that I just need to get through the first year, find a better job, get more experience. But here it is. I have 3 years of experience and have tried a few different areas and I still don't like it. In my entire life, I have never had a single job I did not enjoy until I became a nurse. I enjoyed waiting tables, working in a coffee shop, scooping ice cream, being a cashier at a supermarket. I have always enjoyed going to work, being productive, and doing my job. Nursing is terrible. The stress and workload is unmanageable. I dread going to work and count the minutes until I can leave. Now that I have a baby on the way, I know I need to get out. But alas, this revelation is to going to help me pay my bills so I am stuck for now. I need an exit strategy.
