    I am so with you on this, I am on disability at the moment but like you, I'm burned out. I'm a LPN but I can relate to what you were going through. Working with 30+ residents it's not a picnic, I'm getting social security partial but because of the intensity involved I can't keep up so I'm thinking about giving up and work at something else. Good luck to you

    Thank you. Believe me, it's come at a high cost.....but then, nothing that's worth doing is ever easy, is it?

    VivaLasViejas,
    I don't think its bad you will be a state surveyor unlike some you have floor experience and you will know what the nurses in LTC are up against and also state gets onto the management at places not the nurses though the nurses do the best they can. I think you will be an excellent surveyor. Congratulations.

    Thank you for posting a nice, inspiring post. Your hard work and dedication to the field has yielded a new direction for you. It's nice to know that there are other areas available, especially for those having a difficult time getting a foot in the door of the traditional settings. Congratulations on your new position, and wishing you the best of luck on your journey.
