just wondering what could be some of the least or moderate stressful nursing jobs in Ontario.I have tried both LTC and general medicine and both of them had their own set of struggles.any suggestions??
thank you in advance
Have you tried a retirement home?
I haven’t.is it different from LTC ?
It can be. Residents are more independent and easier to communicate with due to less cognition issues.
You could try community nursing as well.
How long have you been a nurse?
Pretty much any area will have issues.
I have total 13 years experience but all back home.in canada I only have LTC experience and this is my first hospital job.
Forensic psychiatry and mental health. no bedside, it's wonderful! comes with its own challenges and stress, but SO much better than medicine and bedside.
Retirement Home is significantly less stressful than LTC, and if you choose to work in a "luxury" retirement home then the environment is quite nice too. In the entire RH only about 30% actually need care, the rest are usually independent living, some might even still drive or take yearly vacations and stuff so it's less stressful. However, I would say less pay than what you get in hospital or LTC.
If you're tired of bedside care, there's also working in clinics. Those are all private though, I've seen job postings for nurses to work in a private doctor's clinic for as low as 20 an hour and as high as 40.
Community/visiting nursing is a different kind of stress. The job itself isn't hard, you go around and you do that one dressing change or IV and then you leave. I personally found the driving part stressful and being on time for a client who might have a time sensitive drug admin to be hard.
