I hate my job but can’t leave because of UniversityWatch
I absolutely hate my job, it is either boring and spent observing patients or it is hectic - short staffed and dealing with violence/self harm incidents.
I find myself dreading going to work and anxious when I’m there just counting down the hours until I’m done.
My long term plan is to become a community psychiatric nurse and aesthetic practitioner and I do really enjoy my university course. I have worked in various settings prior and do want to be a mental health nurse so it isn’t something I want to change in that respect. I cannot leave because this isn’t something I can fund myself as well as paying my mortgage, bills etc.
I think I’m asking for miraculous advice here on how to get through the next 3 years or if anyone has been in a similar position to me.
