Hi. I have been working a little over a year in the LTC setting. A little background about me, I chose to study Nursing because of family pressure. I struggled a lot during nursing school, and I thought it would get better when I start working... but my situation is getting worse. I am feeling more and more anxious when I have to go to work. I end up crying and feeling horrible about my situation.

I am taking a little break right now... and I don't want to go back to work (in any nursing field/setting) and everytime I think about going back because I have to be responsible (aka.  have bills to pay), I end up breaking down. I dread it. I don't want to go back. I have my RN license (not BSN). But even thinking about exploring other areas of nursing, I feel so much anxiety.. I just keep feeling horrible. I really want to get out of nursing, but I just feel so lost. Is anybody else experiencing something similar? 😢

Maybe work with a therapist to sort out your anxiety and career issues.  I was once stuck in a career and wanted Out so I quit and went to school for nursing.   

If you want out then polish up that resume and cover letter and get them to recruiters.  Indeed.com is one of the biggest Job Search engines and LinkedIn is where a lot of recruiters hang out.  Wishing you the best.
