So much nursing burnout currently in the nursing field or in the medical profession in general just curious if nursing burnout is affecting you what area are you working in and how long have you been in that profession?

I’ve been a nurse since 2016. I got burned out really felt it about 3/4 years in. So I started to do travel nursing. A lot of work and jumping around but it was refreshing. Now I’m back to staff. I think it’s all about having a good outlet. Going to the gym and having friends you can spend time with. Also working nights leads to a lot more burnout than days.

I work at a SNF. 56 bed facility. 2 med nurses aka charge nurses. 1 treatment nurse. 1 supervisor in the evening who is also the admissions nurse so it doesn’t help having a supervisor. The big load is on the med nursing who have to do med pass x 3 because we do 12 hrs shifts, COC’s and get all the progress notes/dailies/documentation done. We get 1 break if that during the 12 hrs. It’s very difficult in San Diego working in a SNF right now.

Switch to nights/days for awhile. Gives you a change. Ask to go to another floor. See diff people and scenery !

3 years ER and just hit 1 year in ICU, and I’m so over it. I feel like nursing has had such a negative impact on my life. I’ve thought about just quitting and figuring it out as I go bc I’m too exhausted on my off time to even plan an alternative career route. I love my coworkers, but the only reason I’m still doing it is to pay for the nursing school loans. No job should have such negative impact on your life and soul.

Pediatrics nurse for 13 years. I was getting burned out when we got stuck doing adult medsurg and oncology. HATED IT!! Now we are a closed unit and I love it again.

Nursing 12 years (mental health trained, primarily worked in challenging behaviours and brain injury. UK based)

I became badly burnt out in my last job as a senior staff nurse, primarily due to a lack of support from management and bullying in the work place. I was expected to do everything but not given the resources staff or time to do it! I ended up going on the sick for 3 months and seriously considering quitting nursing altogether.

I instead changed to agency nursing (like local travel nurse in the US I think?) I choose where and when I want to work. I find this so much easier and it’s 100% the best decision I ever made. Because I can choose my shifts and don’t have to deal with politics I feel I’m able to give my all and do my best work without stress. Highly recommend.

Nurse for 22yrs and I wish I would have chosen a different career. Nursing is not what it use to be. I’m burnt out. It’s made me bitter.

4 years in clinic for infectious diseases. It’s always been a hard place to work, now with covid especially. I felt my burnout after few months there and it is just getting worse every day.

I’ve been a nurse for 2 years in Med Surg. I think I’ve had enough already.

I’m a new grad RN in my first job, and as excited as I was to land this position, I’m absorbing my colleagues’ burnout every minute of my shifts. I already dread going to work and have cried more in the past 6 weeks than I did in all of nursing school. I don’t know what I’m going to do to stay in this career I worked so hard for.

Nurse for 27 years, currently PACU nurse in a surgicenter, which used to be very nice……now busier with more cases, no staff, sicker frailer and more demanding patients. Honestly looking everyday for non-bedside job or even better remote work from home job.

I’ve been nursing a year and a half and it’s really affect us. I work acute care med surg and we are basically always above our safe ratios due to this. It’s exhausting.

I am an OR RN and I am exhausted, overwhelmed, and defeated. It’s a daily struggle with increasing cases and fewer and fewer staff. I am looking daily for another job…I would love to leave healthcare all together. It’s a war zone in the hospitals and the higher ups just keep getting richer and more bonuses while we suffer.

Honestly, I’m so exhausted. No staff, no equipment, no stock, no support.

People aren’t listening or helping. Can’t take leave because there’s no staff and they won’t cancel operating theatre lists because what about the money! Heaven help we think about staff or patient safety!
