I was a very enthusiastic new grad 10 years ago, eager to work bedside. Over the years I have grown weary of the stress, lack of breaks, unpleasant odors and so on.
I believe I can take charge of my future as an NP, provide good care and be happier in that role.
I wonder if I'm being too optimistic.
Do you enjoy your role better as an NP?
Do you miss bedside nursing?
