I've been working at a SNF for 4 months now and I feel like it is not getting any easier. I leave every night feeling guilty about something I didn't get to or worrying that I did something wrong. I have 28-32 residents and I'm struggling. Every day I make some sort of mistake and I never leave work feeling good about my job. I cry every night over something that happened whether it be snotty coworkers, med error, or just the general stress of the job. Everyone says that the first year is hard but it's almost unbearable. I'm learning that the stress of the job is ruining my quality of life. Are there any branches of nursing that are more rewarding than stressful? I just don't think I'm cut out for long term care.
