I have worked for 6 yrs now in cardiac stepdown/tele progressive care unit. 2 yrs ago, I posted about my burnout. But I thrive and stick to my unit again for couple yrs. Last yr covid pandemic, our floor was shut down, floated to med surg floor, ICU and covid unit then back to our floor where we isolate possible covid. I just started as a charge nurse and preceptor last year. It feels like I have another meltdown this yr and feels like I have not able to focus more on my patients but more on the tasks, and management expectations or even co workers expectations of me as the charge. I will understand if they are new nurses but they are not new. Then I need to know the flow of patient's # on our floor and more. But in our unit, charge nurse takes 3 to 4 patients I did not get a pay raise for 5 yrs until this career ladder started last yr but I have to accumulate hours in order for them to give you a raise and advance to the ladder. But this year, I feel more not in touch with what I do as a nurse at bedside. It is more passing meds, waiting until snf placement for the elderly, make sure we charge supplies to pts, etc. I applied for another position in our hospital. And it is in OutPatient surgery/GI lab unit. This unit last yr became our covid unit. The work setting is different. I need ideas on what are considerations I need to think about, pros and cons from transferring to a cardiac stepdown unit. This unit enhanced my nursing assessment skills, acute and progressive care, collaboration with doctors and other staff but feels like I am not growing there professionally. I feel numb and unable to function this yr as a bedside nurse compared to before the first 2 to 4 yrs there. Needed someone to give me their perspectives and views. Appreciate it.
