Hello!
How many of you have quit your bedside nursing job or thinking about it?

I currently work at a Neuro/Spinal/General Rehab facility — as many other places we don’t have enough ppr or cleaning supplies— it’s a scary situation that we all are in.

I was told by my charge nurse couple of days ago that I look selfish to others if I wear 2 regular masks (cheap) instead of one.. I have to admit I’m starting to develop anxiety in my work place and I just feel worried period

I just feel so worried and depressed in this whole situation.. I’m healthy no hx of anything, single, in my 40s but my parents live at home with me.. I really want to give myself a last shot in motherhood after this storm passes.. I really want to give myself that opportunity to become a momma someday. I had been taken care of myself all these years and now this happens which I am really considering to leave bedside FT and possibly do Per Diem or PT and do hospitality on the side (before nursing).

thank you so much for listening! I am here for you guys too if you need to vent.. stay safe everyone!!

Hey hun! I totally get you! I am going thru the same thing. I think its great idea going to PT or Per Diem so you can get a break along with hospitality while finishing your masters, at least you have options. Maybe do behavioral/psych instead of Rehab so you can learn more about psych. Go after dreams girly! You will do great 🙂

Hi -- I left you a long message about PMHNP programs on another thread. As an older mama -- just don't wait until after 44 -- it gets so much harder as (data shows that reproduction plummets at that age!) Good luck -- I just became a mom and am over 45 -- but it took a lot of IVF tries-- so put it first! I am incredibly happy with being a mom -- more important than any job ever!

All the best to your parents. Use all your nurse knowledge to keep them safe!
