I feel every single bit of your pain. When I read your words, I would think I wrote them myself. I have been doing home health for 9 years and now that I doubt being able to continue this crazy pace I am expected to put up with. I would LOVE to go back to hospital nursing. Now, that I have been away from hospital nursing for 9 years, ALL the experience I have gained over the years does not matter anymore. I don't have the recent experience being required now. I am so tired of dragging my butt through the door only to face another 3 hours of charting that I still have to do. I am frustrated concerning the "princesses in the ivory tower" seeing the world through a computer screen calling shots on what I am expected to do. I too have no life. I have lost tract of all my past times to enjoy life. Everytime I turn around I have to be on call which actually is just a 12 day stretch of work days.
