Just wanted to say I agree with the OP. I'm completely burned out and need to get away from the bedside. I'm sick of 12s and working weekends. And the short staffing is getting out of control. I'm also burned out dealing with entitled patients and families and being a punching-bag for everyone.
I actually want to get away from nursing altogether. I feel like it is a dead-end job (that may just be my perspective, but it seems like there is no upward mobility at all) I want to get away before it's too late.
I hope to change to a non-nursing job someday soon. Or at least a non-hospital nursing job. I haven't even been doing this very long, but I know its not for me. I've even found myself daydreaming about my old crappy retail/restaurant jobs lately. I wish I'd listened to those voices in my head telling me it wasn't a good fit during school, but practicality won out I guess.
