Being a call center nurse is not less stressful. It is a different kind of stress. I take 40-50 calls in 8 hours. Back to back, no break. It is very micromanaged. Sometimes you will feel like a 911 operator. Callers tend to be very stressed and/or rude. Staring at a computer screen all day, while you type, listen to the caller and figure out what to do with them following a strict protocol. This type of work is hard on the brain. Lots of multitasking.
