- by iamgabrielle Feb 10Hi I'm a working nurse.. and I am so grateful to have a job.. I tried med Surg, psych and tele.. but what I really want is to do counseling or teaching.. I am great in making patients feel good and better by talking to them, most of them said that I have a great bedside manner and care.. but I'm done.. I want to leave bedside behind.. at the end of the day my body hurts I don't get enough sleep and just crash.. not enough time for my kids due to being soo tired.. so now what I do need for experienced nurses can you guys give me some advice where to go to next.. A nursing area where I can still use my brain but no more bed side care.. No teaching for nursing students either.. thank you so much and God bless.. PS to the nurses who loves bedside and is been doing that for years.. YOU GUYS ROCK
- Feb 10 by Sun0408Have you thought about inpatient palliative care.. That is a lot of evaluation and teaching with no bedside aspect... Check area hospital's web sites for listings that do not require pt care..
- Feb 10 by iamgabrielleHaven't really thought about palliative care.. I'll look into it.. Thanks so much
- Feb 10 by LTCNSCase Management, Utilization Review for a hospital or insurance company, home health, triage, school nurse...Just a few suggestions.
- Feb 10 by Sun0408Quote from WhisperaI'm not talking about palliative care nursing as in hands on care/HH.. More intake, assisting MD with care plans, pt teaching, helping the family understand the process etc.. We have several. They come in, talk to the pt and family and develop a POC, organize services with the PCP etc. Maybe someone else can chime in with the proper termThe palliative care nursing I did required oodles of bedside care...
- Feb 11 by hbshearer, rnI think that's the right term; it's more like management of care. The hospital I used to work at would have a hospice nurse that made rounds on the inpatient hospice pts and home hospice pts, ensuring that the primary nurse has everything she/he needs for the pt and that the pt is comfortable. They talk with the family, etc. I never talked to a doctor when I had pts on inpatient hospice (worked on an onc floor so we had many). The hospice nurse was always a wonderful resource.

Work in a women's health clinic counseling and patient care teaching
- Feb 11 by edmiaQuote from Sun0408That would be the hospice admission nurse or case manager. It's a great job, but usually requires hospice bedside experience.
