    I graduated nursing school and took my NCLEX about a year ago. I ended about getting a job in an ER in September and I've been working there for the last 9 months. I've started to feel really stressed at work. I know it's a very stressful place to work and being a new grad doesn't help either. I don't know much about other ERs, but it seems very busy. I work one of the busiest shift (11am-11pm). I feel like a quickly get overwhelmed when I start to get 5,6, or 7 patients. I don't know if I feel stressed because I'm just a slow person, a new grad, or just can't handle stress well. I need money for varies reason, and I usually hear people work extra shift to get some extra money, but it's just feels to stressful to me to take extra shift. I don't know where else to go in the nursing field. I would like to work somewhere with a slower pace and less stress. I've been thinking about getting a second career in another field, but there isn't much I could do without going back to school for 3-4 more year and racking up more debt. I would like to stay in nursing because I like the work but I feel it's just to stressful. Does anyone here have any advice on where to look in nursing for less stressful environment or did I make a huge mistake and wasted the last 8 years or my life plus some more with all the debt I now have from schooling. I really appreciate any comments. Thank you and sorry for any spelling and grammar errors.

    Thanks for your comments. I've put in about 20 apps for a hospital near me (The same one I'm going to clinical at). There application says once you complete one clinical you are eligible to apply for a PCT job there. I'm going to talk with my clinical instructor and see what he says about become a PCT. I'm going to look for other hospital I can apply too when I have a chance. Finals are next week so I may have to wait till they are over so I have some time to fill them out. Thanks again.

    http://www.nhanow.com/patient-care-technician.aspx This website offer an exam to become a certified PCT. Is it a scam?I'm a nursing student right now and I'm finishing nursing 1 now. I thought I read some where once you complete nursing 1 you can become a pct. I'd like to get a job as one to give me more experience in the hospital setting. I've also been an Emt for the last 3 years. What would be the best way to get a pct job while I'm in nursing school? Will being a pct help me get a job when I'm done with school?(posted this in two other sections, trying to find where people might know the answer)
