Lately I’ve been pretty dissatisfied with my day job as a pediatric nurse. Not the whole job, but a certain aspect of it that has grown into the biggest part of my job. If I could work with patients and their families, help them find the tools they need to deal with whatever condition the physician or nurse practitioner has diagnosed my job would be great. But I spend most of my time dealing with insurance and access to medication.
In my search for a way to deal with my current state of burn out I came across and article called Nurse Burnout Prevention by Aila Accad. You can read it here. Even if you’re not a nurse, there is helpful information in the article that could be applied to many who are experiencing job dissatisfaction.
