    ROTF! At some point many people across all careers feel like that. My suggestion would be to take a stroll in the “Specialties” area of allnurses.

    I never knew before exploring this website, that SO many different specialties of nursing existed.
    Next, if nothing there tickles your fancy, you could go into Medical Coding & Billing. You would be able to transfer many of your nursing knowledge to that area. After 2-3yrs
    exp, you could work from home. Great videos on Youtube about this.
    Lastly, what other things interest you? With a degree in nursing, you wouldn’t have to start from zero to complete another degree.

    Feel ya~~~Felt the same way, worked on ED over flow for three years. Hated the job, felt like a waiter more than anything else (without tips, obviously). Got sick of it, no passion for patients and family. Left the unit and went to GI lab, now loving my job and will
    NEVER go back to bedside. I enjoyed patients that really do appreciate what you are doing for them, but the unreasonable requests are way more often. I really admire those who stays at bedside for ten, twenty, forty years. You are truly passionate about your job. I am not the right person for bedside nursing.

    I do hate my job sometimes but mostly I hate female nurses who make this job so unbearable by bullying and harassing others. That is what makes this profession so unbearable. With the right group of positive people, this could be the best profession. I have used all the negative experiences as motivation to go back to school and get away from bedside nursing.

    And I hate misogynists who blame all of their problems on female nurses.
