Senior Burnout....who's with me?


  • Specializes in Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgical. Has 3 years experience.

Only 6 weeks till graduation....who else is tired of the care plans, projects, tests, papers, and biting their nails over job interviews?


I am so done with it all, I just want to walk across that stage, get my piece of paper, sit the boards and get on with my life!

2 tests, the HESI, and 4 weeks of clinical left! I'm so over it. Thankfully this class doesn't have our normal care plans, no projects due and no papers! Makes for a much less stressful class. Well, if you ignore the fact that our final grade is ONLY based on 3 things..absolutely no wiggle room there...ughh!

Come on May!

So with you! Precepting is a pain in the butt. As the RNs on my floor like to point out, I'm actually PAYING to work 12 hr night shifts.

I'm right with you. Channelling all of my energy and time into finding a job. Actually just interviewed at a SICU; hopefully I'll hear back soon. As for now, sort of just floating through tests and clinical. For some reason it's all just doable now. I know I'm in for a reality shock once I start working. But talk about senioritis. Is it May yet??

I'm just ready to get on with working and making some $$$. I'd like to end up in stepdown/ICU eventually, but it looks like job

prospect wise I'll end up in med/surg.
