How long have you been out of school?
This is the OP's first nursing job and he has only been at it for a few months.
The first year of nursing is usually the hardest. To be honest, it takes several years for some people to hit their personal stride and finally feel comfortable at work. Give it some time.
There's also a tradeoff in the workplace and in life itself. I've worked fun, low-stress jobs outside of nursing that did not pay much or involve a great deal of responsibility. Jobs that involve high stress, increasing amounts of responsibility for peoples' lives, and accountability for your actions usually pay at least a middle class income or higher. On the other hand, the fun jobs with minimal stress and limited responsibility generally do not pay peanuts.
Hence, there's an opportunity cost to every decision we make, especially regarding the trajectory of our career pathways.
