    No, I never missed bedside care. The decision, for me, was the right one and I spent many years reinventing myself along the way in my APRN career.

    I totally agree with trauma and Jules about keeping current in all things related to what I (we) do as an NP and finally recognizing and making the all-important decision to step away when the time comes.

    The replies from everyone are very good and really hit the nail on the head in regards to politics, burnout, and overall satisfaction.

    Quote from pedsicu
    siri
    i have to challenge you on what you said about the sane nurse not being a patient advocate but a support person. being a sane for nine years it's all about being a patient advocate to get them the care needed and not having to sit in a waiting room for ten hours or more. its all about the evidence that we collect but it is also about the compassion to these patients because no one else wants to go into that room. i work with the peds population mostly in a facility that i have had to fight from day one to get great care for these patients. i'm not saying they won't get good care but i put it this way, if it was you or your child wouldn't you want the best for them to get it done right and have that chance to put that person behind bars because you knew what needed to be done. i not attacking you but this is something that i feel very strong about because we are seen in a different light at times.
    i understand what you are saying, pedsicu. and, yes, i want someone who knows what they are doing should there ever be a time in my life it is required. god forbid that ever happens...

    if it was you or your child wouldn't you want the best for them to get it done right and have that chance to put that person behind bars because you knew what needed to be done.
    this has nothing to do with patient advocacy. this is a part of the job as a support person dealing with the case.

    the sane nurse serves as patient support. as patient advocate, there could be conflict of interest in legal proceedings such as in court and therefore, are not recognized as legal advocates. individuals who require an advocate person should be asked if they need one while the sane nurse collects evidence and is supportive.

    in an ideal situation and one with careful planning and design, there should be the sane, law enforcement, and patient advocate summoned for the victim. the sane and advocate work in tandem.

    many states outline how the team is comprised and many states will outline how the patient must be informed that he/she can have an advocate present while the sane nurse gathers evidence.

    i not attacking you
    no, i know you are not.

    Excellent. Thank you.

    My mother told me when I became a Nurse, "Congratulations on your accomplishment, sirI, I am proud of you. I want you to always remember this day and look ahead. The day you become disillusioned and un-caring because of the weight of this career is the day you need to revisit your passion and make a decision about where you are today and into your future".
