Anyone else have recurring nursing dreams? I’ve had this recurring dream that occurs at least once a week for over a year now. I started my nursing career in a hospital but left after two years because night shift was damaging my physical and mental health. I’ve worked in a clinic for almost two years now and it’s overall a much better fit for me. I learned so much as a floor nurse and am grateful to have had that experience. However, I dreaded going to work every day and couldn’t wait to move on to a different job. Ever since I left, I have this recurring dream where I’m working at the hospital again. In my dreams, I usually am aware of my current 9-5 M-F clinic job and am just “picking up a shift for the weekend”. They are usually good dreams, which is surprising to me because I mostly hated my hospital job. In real life, I’d never go back to working in a hospital setting, but in these recurring dreams I end up considering working there again. Also of note, there are a few of the same coworkers in my dreams as well sometimes. These are coworkers I was friends with on my floor and did things with outside of work during the two years I was there. However, I have had trouble getting in touch with them ever since - I feel like we ended on a bad note, but am not sure what I might have done wrong to end the friendships. Anyway, I guess I am trying to process why these dreams keep coming back. In reality I don’t feel very nostalgic about my old job, so I’m not sure why it keeps popping up in my dreams. I can understand why my coworkers keep making an appearance in these recurring dreams, as I haven’t been able to get closure as to why our friendships ended and I do miss them. I have had recurring dreams of my teenage waitressing job - but those are more like nightmares where I forget people’s orders, break glasses, or spill coffee on a customer. I’m surprised I’m not having more anxiety-related dreams of my old nursing job like making a med error, experiencing a patient death, or getting fired. In real life I was anxious and stressed at my first nursing job most of the time.Just curious if anyone has ever had this experience or a similar one with recurring nursing-related Dreams?
