Ready to Quit Your Nursing Job? Do These Things Instead

Nursing is a difficult profession even in the best of circumstances. When you make life or death decisions as often as a nurse, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. If you’re in a particularly bad spot, you may feel ready to quit the profession altogether. Before you do, consider other options.

A great environment, a few stress management strategies, and pleasant co-workers can make being a nurse well worth the while. If you’re frustrated with your current nursing job, don’t change careers just yet. Try these strategies instead:

Get Out of the Hospital

Despite what some people would have you believe, nurses don’t have to work in hospitals to be fulfilled. Many medical professionals hate the hospital setting and think that means that medicine isn’t for them. However, a change in the environment could be all you need.

At NurseCore, our home care providers have flexibility and the feeling of knowing they make a difference every day. Some of our other professionals work in nursing home settings, offices, and schools. Give another environment a shot and you might find that nursing is right for you after all.

Join a Staffing Agency

If you’re looking for a change in environment, you may not be sure what type of nursing is right for you. When that’s the case, if can be risky to accept certain jobs. What if home care isn’t for you? What if you don’t love being a school nurse?

A staffing agency like NurseCore solves these problems for you. We look for nurses of all kinds to fill a variety of positions. If something doesn’t work for you, we can find you a new gig. It’s a great way to explore new kinds of nursing and find the right fit for you.

Practice Self Care

No matter what kind of nursing you practice, the job can be stressful. That’s why it’s important for all nurses to practice self-care techniques. Be sure to set aside regular time to meditate, get a massage, take a bath, or do something else that makes you happy.

Before you give up on nursing altogether, give these strategies a try. You may find that you’re happier than ever.
