I'm a new nurse of 8 months. I currently work on an orthopedic med/surg telemetry floor. Last night I had 9 patients to myself and two other nurses who are newer nurses than I am had 8 and 9 patients each. This isn't a frequent occurence (twice in 8 months for me) but in general the stress level for me is very high. I'm always going home wondering 'did I do everything I needed to do??'. I'm wondering, is home health a less stressful environment? I realize nursing can be stressful no matter where you are working but in general I would think home health would be better. I really enjoyed it during my clinicals and I think my personality would go well with home health. Any opinions would be appreciated!
