I've been itching to go back to school for my masters for quite some time now. I'm sick to death with bedside nursing.... the politics, weekends, nights, holidays, horizontal hostility between nurses, poor management, patients are sicker than ever, doctors are downright rude most of the time, constantly broken equipment or not enough supplies... I could really go on and on. I do love working in healthcare though and don't want to leave the field completely. I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of or has experience with an RN who has gone back to school for PT or OT rather than NP. Going back for NP seems like a given because I'm already a nurse with a BSN, but I don't know how much better being an NP would be since nursing hasn't worked out the way I had hoped.
