Hello fellow nurses!
I have been an RN for 4+ years and travel nurse for 1+ year. I became a nurse because of what I thought would be a lot of patient care and helping people, but instead, find myself already feeling burnt out and 90% of my day is charting.
I recently graduated with my MSN in education, and was offered a job as an ADN faculty (yay!). However, the pay is a big jump...we're talking roughly $86,000/year (traveling) to $48,000/year (educator salary)..yikes! I feel like with the hours, summers, weekends and holidays off to spend with my family and son it will be worth the pay cut. Not to mention being run ragged 4 days a week.
Has anyone else left the "floor" to become and educator or is anyone thinking about it?? Was it the right choice?? Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!!
