    Hi all,
    I’m looking for some creative career ideas for a RN who does not want to work in direct patient care.
    I have a bachelor degree in broadcasting and mass communications and an associate degree in nursing.
    I have 3 months experience in a med/surg unit and almost a year in public health doing home care nursing for maternal/infant.
    I do not even know where to begin to look for jobs that can combine the two degrees in some way or allow my creative side to be applied to my work life.
    I have 5 years experience in a small hospital where I worked for a short period of time in admitting, but the majority of the time was spent working in the lab.
    I’m starting to question if I truly even like healthcare anymore. I feel so burned out even though I’m early in my nursing career. I’m starting to regret my decision to go back to school for nursing in the first place.
    Please help!

    Hi Jennibee,

    I understand where you’re coming from. I’m also a graduate of Nursing and this a course that I did not really want in the first place and was forced by me relatives to go that path however this all changed when I actually got to work as a Nurse, it may be because I really love taking care of people and it gives me satisfaction each time I see a patient recover.

    Given that you spent years working in a hospital, I think you have that same passion as well and it’s just that you have to find the right work place. It is normal to feel burnt out, you just have to give yourself a break form time-to-time.

    If you have time, try to check out this link and hope it helps you 🙂
