I also hate nursing. I hate it with every fiber in my soul right now. I’ve been at it for seven years, six years away from being eligible to retire. Of course I won’t be able to afford to retire, that’s a pipe dream I can’t even entertain.
I’m on my fifth job in seven years. I’ve moved with the hopes of finding a better environment. Whoever posted earlier about the toxicity hit the nail on the head. It’s everywhere. Lousy management is also everywhere, especially bad at my current hospital. Every day I beat up the job boards looking for something less miserable, knowing it doesn’t really exist.
