I currently work in a very busy Palliative care Unit as a Qualified Nuse. I am finding it very stressful and struggling with the shift work particularly nights ( maybe I am just getting too old?) and lates followed by earlies. I have 4 kids so home life is very busy although they are mostly teenagers now.
I have seen a community Nurse vacancy advertised and am thinking of applying for it if they would consider part time but I am just so worried about taking the plungeand then regretting it. I have been at my current workplace for 10+ years and I do like working in a team.
Can any of you community Nurses give me an idea of a typical day, do you get enough training and enough support? Will I end up being just a stressed as I am now? My only real experience of community Nursing was almost 30 years ago when I did my student placement so I know things will be very different now. Thankyou for any advice.
