Hi. I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on a nursing career that is less physical as one of a floor nurse?
I'll be getting my RN soon and have been working on the floor for the past 5 years. At my ripe age of 51, with an RN degree, any suggestions?
A friend has mentioned a nursing career in research or case management. I do enjoy the floor but find myself much more physically exhausted after my shift than I used to be.
Yes, I have a packed home life too with 3 children.
Any other mature nurses feel this way? What have you done about it?
Maybe I should begin lifting weights.
