@Jw1724:  I’ve been a nurse for 12 years. I’m now a nurse case manager for an insurance company…. More money and less stress! No weekends and no holidays….. Score! 

Maybe you can look into a switch into a health insurance company…. I love it!!

I have considered PACU and OR because most of the stress of my pediatric job relates to stressed out, anxious parents and pain crises- you don’t get either of those in those specialties!

I too do post-op and it is very stressful and does cause the burned out feeling really quickly.  I was thinking of switching to med-surg or just go to outpatient clinic!  it is probably less pay but you don’t deal with the stress of inpatient care.

Both my fiance and I work night shifts and are both in NP school for our Masters so its already hard enough to see each other unless we’re doing wedding planning.  I ended up going part time work to lessen the stress.  But Houston, all the shifts are 12 hours each.. they got rid of 8-hr shifts soo we have our off days.  Maybe try finding a 12-hr shift in a med-surg area?

I would look into call centers/phone triage.

@Britt_RN:  I echo this as well.

 

 

 

 I’m not a nurse, but I have a close friend who is.  She started her career working as Director of Nursing at a nursing home and had a hard time dealing with all the death and loss.  She has now been working at a Nurse Line call center and LOVES it.  Less stress and set hours.
