I am new at a long term care nursing home as nurse assistant and I absolutely hate my job. The co-workers are nice and friendly but I work on the dementia unit and it is extremely depressing. The patients fight me and hit me because I'm trying to change them and I don't want to help people who don't want to be helped (or do not know they need help) because I find it uncomfortable and I feel awful. I've already shed tears because of how depressed I am at this job and I'm still only training! I can't even imagine how stressed I'll be when I really start working and have to take care of between 10-14 people! I'm only 18 and I'm going to college next month so I'll have to focus on school mainly, so should I just quit and leave this stress behind? I've realized that working at a nursing home is not for me, I'm just afraid that human resources will get snippy at me for quitting after only two weeks, what do you think? Also, since I'm only training right now and not on the work rotation yet, do I need to give a two weeks notice?
