I'm a BSN-prepared nurse that has been working in a specialty ICU since Oct 2015 with no other nursing experience before that. I work nights right now and I don't think I could handle the pace of day shift in ICU or even on med-surg (I have thought about this but it's not an option). I am considering making a change to outpatient within my hospital network. The job ads say a BSN is required and one year of nursing experience is preferred.Right now, I struggle with the anxiety of my job. Even 24 hours before work, I fear what is going to come onto our floor. The thoughts consume my days off. I fear a lack of teamwork when I'm working with certain coworkers, and this can't be helped sometimes when we are short on nurses and have no tech. It's straining my relationship with my husband, as he is always trying to help me cope with my fears. I think working nights doesn't help either. I usually wake up between noon and 2pm and then start to worry about work and I can't fall back to sleep.I just had an annual meeting with my boss and she said I am doing a good job and that she wants me to start precepting new nurses soon. Although I am fairly confident in my skills, I feel like my job is burning me out too fast. I love my patient population and this was my dream job out of nursing school, but I think I would have a better work/life balance doing outpatient - where my day would be somewhat more organized. Just feeling this way makes me think I'm a bad nurse or that I'm stupid for even wanting to leave a spot that so many people want. But I think about it every day and I think that it's best for me to move on just so I can find a spot in nursing that fits my personality better.So those that have gone from inpatient to outpatient, especially with an ICU background, was it a hard transition? How long did it take for you to get comfortable with your new position? Do you think this would be a better place for someone who struggles with "the unknown" fear that can come with working on the floors?
