Ever feel defeated and totally worn-out by the end of the day? *Raises hand* Ever had that feeling most days of the week? *hand still in the air* Exhaustion, overwhelm, and burnout are at an all time high among nurses.
After all the education, training, and student loans, do you feel like you made a mistake and ended up in the wrong profession? Or you’re wondering how you can keep doing this until retirement? Yep, same!
Here’s the most important thing: You are not alone! Exhaustion and overwhelm are prevalent in many careers; particularly nursing. Many of us in healthcare were already frustrated and burned out, long before the pandemic. Others are feeling that way right now and looking to leave the profession.
So let me say it again for the people in the back: You are not alone!
