HELP!!! Non clinical jobs UK

  1. Hi all not sure if this is the right place to post this or not but here goes....and I'm sorry it's a bit of a moan! I been working as an RN for approximately the last 8 years in various hospitals and nursing homes, decided earlier this year after suffering some serious burn out to change to a non clinical role and got a job as a PIP assessor, still nurse based but non clinical, problem being I hate it and now I don't know what to do. I don't want to go back to a clinical role in a hospital or home but this really isn't for me and I find myself having panic attacks on a daily basis about going to work. Some have suggested going into drug rep companies or working for lawyers decifering medical notes but iv no idea how to get into it.Any suggestions on where to go from here would be much appreciated as I feel stuck in a rut, I loved nursing for so long but now I almost want nothing to do with it

    The nurses that I know who have become reps, usually just looked up rep companies and checked out if they have vacancies. Why not consider a 9 - 5 nursing job, like a GP or community or outpatients. Much less burnout but still very patient orientated.

    I don't want to seem intrusive but why do you not like the PIP assessment job? EVERY nursing career fair I go to have either an Atos or Capita etc stand and I'll be honest the salary and working arrangements make it sound really appealing.

    Have you thought about research nursing?

    From what I read and hear about PIP assessors I'm not surprised you want out. It seems - from second hand information - that you are just ticking boxes. You are really, really poorly thought of by the public. Read the recent Private Eye for an appraisal.

    Good luck with your plans.
