Have you found yourself questioning if you want to stay in nursing?
You’re not alone! After the past year and a half, more and more nurses are burned out at the bedside or looking for an alternative to traditional nursing roles.
My desire to help others is the reason why I became a nurse. My years in the hospital led to more anxiety and tears before each shift. As much as I loved being a nurse, I had burned out with direct patient care. The long hours, being short staffed, and not getting a break when I needed one were just some of the reasons I needed a change. I knew enough was enough. At first I felt defeated that I had worked so hard for my nursing degree for nothing. But the truth is, I learned there are so many options to use that degree outside of the hospital! The best move I made for my health was to leave the hospital and work in an outpatient clinic for a pulmonologist. No nights, weekend, holidays or call was wonderful!
However, after starting a family of my own, my priorities completely changed, and I began my search yet again for other options. I desperately wanted a role that would provide more flexibility and time with my family. I discovered that companies were hiring nurses to work at home! I had no idea that this was even an option for nurses and got busy searching. I spent hours and hours each night trying to figure out what roles existed, what companies were hiring, and I had no idea what I was even looking for. I spent months and months applying over and over and receiving one rejection email after another. Then one day, everything changed almost 8 years ago. I was contacted by a recruiter for one of the roles I applied for. I interviewed and landed my first nursing role away from the bedside as a utilization management nurse. I started training and working in the office and then transitioned to home less than one year later.
After answering the same questions, I started the Work at Home Nurse to help more nurse moms like me who are looking for the same flexibility and more time with their family by working from home. No commute, working in pjs, being at home for my boys before and after school, and taking a break when I need one are perks I am grateful for now more than ever. Working at home as a nurse is still a job and can come with its own unique stress, but definitely not the same as being at the bedside.
