I want to get out of bedside nursing. What can I do with my degree? I have a BSN and less than a year of acute care experience. I want to do something different now. I think my body and mind cant handle the stress of bedside nursing anymore. My figure deteriorated since I started to work. There are multiple times that I didnt eat for 14 hours at work! I hold my pee many times also. I hope I didnt develop renal problems. I cried multiple times coming home late from work. Now, I need a change. Maybe a 8 hour/5 days a week job. I dont care if the pay is less as long as im happy. Im thinking of getting a desk job for a change. If not, then maybe I can use my degree to become a physical therapist.
Has anyone done this before? Any suggestion? What career change did you end up doing? Thanks for the vent.
