So I recently started a new job at a small HH agency to get away from the chaos of the hospital. I'm just finding Home Health to be close in stress level. My training was only 2-3 weeks and now I'm off on my own and there is only 2 other nurses as several are unavailable. The workload is more than I can handle. I've told the Manager this but they said you'll learn as you go. I haven't been to any training classes yet. I'm starting to regret this move and wonder whether I should stick in there or apply for another job. I really do not enjoy this work so far. I don't have much experience and don't feel comfortable in the home setting. I feel pressured to stay in this job because I need the money and have worked so hard to get it.
Any words of wisdom from more experienced nurses would be appreciated as well as resources for making Home health less of a maze. I am rather young and wish I could do something non-nursing entirely. I have low confidence in general and always am tortured by the thought of work while trying to have 'me time' at home. Switching to a new career is easier said than done. Thanks for listening.
