Going back to work during covid19?

Posted

I left a hospital floor nurse job 3 weeks ago, now as the covid19 crisis is in full swing I am reluctantly going back to floor nursing. After much pressure from my husband to go back to hospital work, (I'm primary bread winner) and pressure from my family to stay away from the hospital and not work at all right now, and the covid19 deal, I'm scared, conflicted and I feel generally unprepared. Should I brave the hospital? What are my other options?

I imagine, as usual, a home health agency would love to scarf you up for extended care case work. You would only be exposed to one patient, if full time on one case. Now, intermittent visit work would require exposure to X number of patients. Don't know if you would want to brave that situation.
