I'm currently a 25 y/o RPN in Toronto
First of all I've been a nurse for 3 yerars now and I am not happy , I really just want to quit .the job is too much for me , heavy workload
other nurses commenting on how I do my job. Mean nurses and families. In my 3 years of nursing I always feel like I'm so dumb and I am not doing things right. I really feel horrible on wanting to quit but it's too much it's so stressful o the point that I am really miserable and anxious every time I have to go to work . I become too sensitive to the point I just come home from work crying. I really love being around pts and help them but nursing is just too much for me.i gave it a shot for a long time , the first year I was i palliative , I want happy , I said I'll stay and try other unit. I did try other unit but it was the same . I'm always anxious going to work I feel like Im trapped.
Now i I finally spoke with my family about it and I'm glad that I did, I'm so depressed stuck being a nurse and I'm sure I'm not happy I kept going back and Fort on quitting but I was too scared, but I feel I need to do it now or else I'll grow old and be miserable in my job
I wanted to go back to school to get a diploma for administration in health to be a clerk . DSL I can still be in health care and I can use my knowledge from being An RPN. I'd rather work on an office type job than be stuck .
i hope I am making the right choice . I know all nurses here understand how stressful it is to be a nurse and I salute all of you for staying. I know it's a dumb idea for a lot of people to kind of give up rpn and settle for an office like job , but what can I do I am not happy
