Trying to decide-- I've been an RN for 4 years on a busy medical oncology floor. It's always been a goal of mine to go back to school and now I am thinking more about it since I've started a family. I'd like to be able to work days and not every holiday away from home! Im looking for a new challenge as I feel burnt out on hospital nursing, yet still very passionate about what I do at its core.
Tell me your pros / cons about becoming an NP as far as challenges, scheduling, patient load, flexibility, change in role, etc.
Do you miss bedside nursing?
Thanks so much!
