Help I really need advice. Please understand that I debated posting this because I don’t want to hear negative comments so please if this post offends you please just kindly scroll by. I’m so mentally and emotionally drained from this job. I’m just not sure how much longer I can keep this up. Honestly I am questioning how to continue with nursing. Veteran nurses how do you keep your sanity? How are you not completely drained? I’m not a new nurse. Been a nurse for a few years now and at the beginning I loved Just A Nurse Who Loves Her Veteran Shirt, don’t get me wrong I love being able to help people but I am in tears right now dreading going into work tonight. I’ve been considering other options but I’m still paying loans and don’t really want to completely give up nursing. Any advice is appreciated.

I’ve been a nurse going on 41 years. When ever I realize I’m suffering from burnout I change depts locations or skill sets. Have I ever cried going to or coming away from a shift absolutely. Thought being a Walmart greeter was the best job in town absolutely. To prevent burnout I have to take care of me. I turn my cell phone on vibrate so no guilt about not coming in. I have “the maids” clean my apt every other week on Friday so I don’t spend my day off Just A Nurse Who Loves Her Veteran Shirt. I might take a mental health day binging on Netflix or spending the day hanging out w my bff. I eat healthy but always keep a candy bowl w bite size candy cause sometimes I just need chocolate. I don’t know if this helped but I still love being a nurse and still get excited to go to work each day.

Try a new specialty. Maybe you need a break from bedside and consider other areas like in Utilization Review or Case Management. I worked as a bedside nurse for Just A Nurse Who Loves Her Veteran Shirt and then moved to Case Management which I love. It is still stressful emotionally and psychologically but not physically. I still get to help people and help fellow nurses too.
