I was very very close to quitting nursing also. I looked into getting jobs adjacent to the medical field, like teaching nurses how to use the electronic health record, which I've done PRN before. But that particular company wanted their instructors to be RNs. Other companies might've been an option though. But then I realized no matter what I did, I would FOREVER be explaining to people, both work colleagues/potential employers as well as personal friends, family, acquaintances, why I'd left nursing. I didn't tell anyone except my husband that I'd been fired, so my friends and family never found out. They just thought I'd changed jobs. If I'd quit nursing, I would have had to explain it for the rest of my life, and I didn't want that reminder!
I also have always thought that when I retire, hopefully early, I would still want to do some part time type of nursing work. At a summer camp, maybe, or go back somewhere part time or PRN after retiring for a few years. I did not want to close that door completely.
I completely understand you wanting to throw in the towel and move on, I felt that way too, but in the end I decided to just start off and jump through the first TPAPN hoop, then the next, and if I decided I couldn't tolerate the monitoring program, then yeah, I'd quit. But since I didn't have any other perfect career lined up already, and my head was still spinning from being fired, I wasn't really in a position to start a new career move, so I just followed the steps TPAPN told me to take, one at a time, and now I'm 6 months from being done! You can always start the monitoring now and quit later, but if you say no to the monitoring now, it will be a lot harder to get yourself to do it later on.
