So confused

  1. I have been a RN for four years and I am still not happy. I have worked in home health for the last 2 yrs but still not comfortable. I worry about my Pts all the time. I do not get a full day off. I am either seeing or doing paperwork seven days a week. I feel like a bad mom and with all this always feel that I am not being a good nurse. I do job searches many times a day. I am having hormonal issues so I am not sure if that is the reason I feel this way. And do not have a happy marriage either. Maybe nursing is not for me. But I have to work. I guess I will just keep plugging away day in day out.

    It sounds like you are unhappy in general. I have the same problem and don't know whether to blame it on nursing or what.

    I would try a new job and reevaluate. 7 days a week?? Yuck. I just had 6 days off and am starting my first 12 hour shift tonight. Are there any hospitals close?
