Hello all and thank you for taking the time to read my post! I am currently in college and I am thinking about getting a BSN degree. A career in nursing sounds exciting and interesting but I dont know if it is a career for me because of chronic foot pain. I was born with a club foot (only one foot) and I had corrective surgery as an infant. I can run and walk just fine. However, If i am on my feet for long periods of time then it tends to be painful the next day (Im going to the doctor to see if its chronic plantar fasciitis). I have tried inserts in my shoes and those seem to help. I have done a little bit of research and it seems like 12 hour shifts are very common for nurses. I also read that some people work 8 hour shifts, if so how often? And are you on your feet the whole time?
