Changing nurse role?!

I'm currently a practice nurse in a lovely surgery but it just isn't doing it for me anymore. Not to mention the pay is awful.
I've been looking at a job working as a nurse analyst within the disability sector - completing assessments writing medical records etc. The pay is good and so are the benefits that come with the job but I'm scared of taking the leap into something less hands on.

Has anybody left a clinical role within nursing to do something similar? Would I be making a huge mistake?

I’m also interested to know this and I am looking into the same area of work.

Also a practice nurse (19 years in primary care, 31 years qualified and at the end of my career (VERY well paid).
I would not recommend that you do this job. It is highly stressful and no-one ever seems to do it for long.

Go onto practice nursing forum and search this. You will see plenty of posts warning of this.
Why so unfulfilled in GP land? Have you specialised? Thought of going down the ANP route. There are loads of options now. And ask for decent pay!!
