Gosh I hope so, because right now I'm strongly considering quitting and just pursuing public health (non-nursing) or OT or anything else.
I hate the paperwork, but I guess any job will have that.
I hate the incredible amount of anxiety I have every single day. I hate feeling like I'm going to kill someone by making a mistake, or they will code and I won't know what to do.
I hate care plans (who doesn't?)
I like being able to help people.
I like making a positive difference, and when my patients thank me and compliment me, it makes me feel good.
I like having a medical knowledge base that could help my family in an emergency-type of situation.
I like having contact with people of diverse backgrounds.
I guess I'm wondering will I like public health nursing any better, or do I need to try something else? Because even the thought of working bedside to get a few years of experience makes me sick. This is only my first semester and I feel like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown.
Any feedback is appreciated, because I need to make a decision really soon.
