    I don’t know if I want to be a nurse anymore

    Awh! Isn't that the truth!! Thank you! Yes, I agree! The continuous bowel movements and naked people don't necessarily bother me... it's more of the angry patients we have to restrain, the stressful situations, the patient-to-tech ratio, etc.. I just get exhausted. I also would like to spend more time with each patient, but know I cannot. I also lack MAJOR boundaries... so, I find it hard to stand up for myself (but, I'm currently going through counseling for this).

    Hey, Davey Do! Thank you so much! I really appreciate your wisdom!
  3. I failed nursing school twice. I always thought I had a love for nursing! I was kicked out of my nursing school in 2019 and have been waiting to get back into a program ever since. I have the opportunity to apply for a program that starts in December; however, now I’m having doubts about entering the nursing field. During my weird break from school, I worked in a hospital as a CNA right at the start of COVID. I became soooo burnt out after a year and a half that would call out constantly and finally decided to resign. I got my EKG certification and am currently working as a telemetry technician on a PCU unit. I hate it just as much. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I love helping people and I love the art of caring. I would consider myself to be highly empathetic, understanding, and patient. I’m an introvert who tends to tire easily from a lot of constant stimulation. I hate stressful situations and environments and I’m worn down from the patients that complain their food is too cold and management reprimanding us for not making their stay as lovely as possible. I hate the abuse and being short staffed. I love caring for people; but, I don’t think I could work for a big corporate hospital. Not only that, I’m $80,000 in school debt, have a three month old baby, and just want to get a degree. I just don’t think nursing is for me... but, I have no idea what else I would do. I’m stuck and confused! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
