I'm in the process of phasing out of nursing now. Currently, I'm in EMT basic school and start paramedic school in May.
Why? I've completely burned out on the childish attitudes, back stabbing, nurses-eat-their-own, thin skinned, whiny personalities that seem to permeate our field, particularly amongst the women in our field. I've been a nurse for 13 years now and can't wait for the day that I either turn my nursing license in or don't renew it.
