Hi all the nurses out there,
I am about to hit a 1-year mark on a very busy med/surgical floor, which I am tired about being a bedside nurse (floated frequently since 2-3 months on my own including 2 months of taking care of COVID patients). Hospitals worry about too much patient satisfaction (I get it), often times, we do not have staffing on the floor for night (1 CNA for the entire floor which we have to help out a lot of things), and that make me unable to like what I do. Right now, seeing more people are leaving, that makes me think what else can I do especially with combination of IT. All I know so far is nursing informatics, but anything else? Appreciate all your input and thank you all nurses!
