Okay, old thread, I know but I have to put in my 2 cents. As a born introvert with borderline social anxiety disorder (diagnosed), I would have to recommend something like home hospice or home health nursing, preferably with a small company. You have lots of "down" time between patients, get to stop and have an actual lunch break most of the time, plus there's lots of documentation (more solitary work). I did that for more than a decade before I grew weary of it. I'm currently working in a psychiatric hospital with people who are mostly there because they are "not-guilty-by-reason-of-insanity" and those deemed incompetent to stand trial. I spend most of my time documenting behind a locked door with plenty of down time to do whatever I want. Seriously, the easiest nursing job I've ever had. We are not expected to hold groups/chat with the clients; that is a task relegated to the team of psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, social workers, etc. The LPNs pass out meds. I'm sure different hospitals do this differently but it's always worth looking into, if you're still trying to find your ideal placement. I've also considered WOCN training and may yet still do that when I get weary of this current job.
