The nursing student was worn out by my "laid back" job. I asked her why and she said "It's just too much stuff! Everyone expects you to be the expert!". Well, yes. Even a low stress job like mine can call upon a nurse to be accountable on a dime.
I did disability management for a few years and we couldn't keep a nurse even though we paid very well with low stress. The reason? "We're bored." So, everyone has their own definition of a perfect job.
