Not happy with Peds PDN and need for help

  1. I've been in Pediatric Private Duty Nursing for over 1 year now. It was the only opportunity I received after graduating with a BSN from school and am super grateful for the opportunity. Lately, I am feeling that PDN is not for me anymore. I feel too much like a babysitter, am not feeling the reward of being a nurse, and feel it's too slow of a pace. I am also a case manager on one of my cases and already do the extra paperwork. My supervisor wants to meet with me for one-to-one conversation to see how I am doing and I am not sure how to discuss my current feelings with her. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I am actively looking for another job but no luck so far. I am at the highest position I can go at my current company unless I want to be stick in the office with paperwork. I still would prefer the hands-on care at this moment.
