    I have been a nurse for 2 yrs only in a medsurge unit but once in a while I would contemplate on switching to adifferent job outside of nursing. However, I couldn't find any job I could land my feet on that matches my salary as an RN. I work in a county hospital where nurse work hard basically.
    It seems to me that now a days people are just getting sicker and sicker and are more drug seekers. There are moments when I have patients that are literally telling me how much narcotics they want for pain and how often they want it, and if they don't get it they scream and yell at your face. For this reason I feel like switching to another job, something that does not deal with sick people .I do feel unsatisfied with my job when I see patients returning to the hospital over and over again for the same reason and are not getting well but getting sicker due to being non compliant.
    Am I the only one feeling this way?

    Heyyyy im in the same boat exactly as what you are feeling now !!! Oh my gush you know i just started my first job its been 6 months since i graduated. Its been past 2 weeks now im in training handled 3 pts on my own already but it seems to me that i couldnt think critically as well everytime i ask questions i get a look like---didnt you learn that in school? Eveytime i come home i would cry after a 12 hr shift in the floor.

    My preceptor is not really explaining things to me:/ sometimes this person does but at times would just disappear or play games when done with charting
