Lpn burnout from LTC

  1. Hello my fellow nurses,

    Im looking for advice on how to combat BURNOUT. I have been an agency nurse for several years. The workload here in GA is unbearable. Long hours and low pay as well. Recently I stopped taking on so many assignments because Im am so physically and mentally tired. Im completely broke and facing losing my apartment along with pile up of debts. Long term care is all lpn can do here. I want to go back to school but I cannot afford it. Please provide any suggestions or words of wisdom. Be gentle. Thanks

    Switch to pediatric home health shifts. It's the best. If you don't mind nights, trachs, or some crazy family's it's easy money.
