Hello everyone, I have been a nurse for about three years now, working mainly in skilled nursing facilities. I have my BSN and am really unhappy in this field. I have tried convincing myself at first that it was because I was a new grad and working at a facility that was terribly understaffed and poorly managed. So i moved to another facility and quickly began feeling the same way. I had the opportunity to work as an admissions nurse and have been doing that for about six months. I'm afraid I just hate nursing. I really dread going into work everyday. Some times I am so anxious that I worry it is affecting my mental health. Other times I just sleep until I really have to leave and just wake myself up and go to work. I'm not sure what depressed feels like but when I think about work I think I am. I often feel so selfish and like a baby for complaining about my job because j was able to go to school and graduate and make decent money...why complain? But I am seriously unhappy and worry about my health now. Mentally I am suffering.I don't want my life to revolve around work. I don't want to feel like I wasted my life or missed big or little life moments because I was too worried about work or too stressed to enjoy life or not able to sleep because of work. Some weeks I work over 50 hours. That is most weeks. I want to spend time with people I love. My boyfriend works days and I work at night and often don't get home until 2 in the morning. I don't see him but twice a week. I never wanted that kind of life. I guess I am just asking for advice and what type of career path can I take? I've always imagined myself working for myself but have no idea what to do. I feel like nursing is all I know and I hate it. I have considered health coaching and have applied at some of those job openings but have no heard back. I just don't know how much longer I can take this. Any advice much appreciated. Sorry for any typos...typed all this on my iPhone!
