    There are many variations on nursing. You don't have to work with patients directly. If you want to stay in that field, go to your public library to look at the Occupational Outlook Handbook (ask a reference librarian for help if you can't find it) and check the section on nursing jobs. The librarian will probably have other sources for you to check. If you can't get anywhere, please come back here and look for me. I'll help you as much as I can.

    Nurse burnout is real. Very real with all of the changes in healthcare in recent years. What kind of nursing do you do? (Iím a labor & delivery nurse). Why do you feel burned out?

    We donít know you or your circumstances, so we really canít tell you whether or not to change jobs without you giving us any kind of background.

    A friend sent this to me recently. I hope it will help.

    About NURSES: Somebody asked: "You're a nurse? That's cool, I wanted to do that when I was a kid. How much do you make?"

    The nurse replied: "HOW MUCH DO I MAKE?" ... I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you're scared. ... I can make your child breathe when they stop. ... I can help your father survive a heart attack. ... I can make myself get up at 5 a.m. to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live.

    I work all day to save the lives of strangers. ... I make my family wait for dinner until I know your family member is taken care of. ... I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure that everything I did for your wife today is charted. ... I make myself work weekends and holidays because people don't just get sick Monday thru Friday.

    Today, I might save your life. ... How much do I make? All I know is, I make a difference.
