I have been an RN since 2010... currently I am working L&D, postpartum and a minimal amount of nursery. I have been at my current job for almost 3 year and am so burnt out on working night shift, dealing with mean doctors, a manager who doesn't support her staff... the list goes on. I am very interested in public health but I am really nervous to leave the bedside. I know that a lot of bedside nursing is skills and knowledge that you gain from hands on experience and I am worried that when it comes time for me to have a family I might need to go back to the bedside for schedules sake. Change is hard! I guess I'm looking for other nurses who have been at this same crossroads and some guidance/insight into the decisions you all have made and how you feel now! Thanks!
