This list was made by considering a number of factors to determine the hottest, most interesting nursing specialties that may help you fall in love with nursing again.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2015
The founder of Hug Your Nurse, a new website that is devoted to providing nurses and related health care professionals with an online community where they can find current and accurate information about their profession, has just posted an article on the very real problem of nurse burnout.
Titled “How to Avoid Nurse Burnout? Specialize!,” the new article on Hug Your Nurse offers valuable insight on why nursing can cause so much job stress, and how to avoid falling into the unpleasant trap of career burnout.
As the article points out, nurse careers can be extremely fulfilling, but this does not mean that they are easy or free from stress. Spending hours on their feet while taking care of patients who can be less than pleasant, along with working with demanding physicians, can cause many nurses to want to quit their jobs. In addition, the ever-growing number of patients combined with a lack of qualified healthcare employees can exacerbate nurse stress, and make them feel miserable. With all of the hard work, long hours and tough conditions that they endure on a day-to-day basis, it’s no wonder why some nurses consider quitting.
In order to avoid burning out, the article suggests that nurses try to cut down on the number of hours that they work. Instead of four 12 hour shifts a week, perhaps the nurse can do two or three. Another great option, the article notes, is for nurses to figure out what they want to do—and then find a way to make it happen. This does not necessarily mean quitting their jobs and embarking on new careers, but rather looking into one of the many nursing specialties that can help rejuvenate their love for their job.
The article then lists 10 of the top nursing specialties that the founder of Hug Your Nurse feels are especially good choices to consider. Among them are wound care nursing, hospice care, flight nurse, and NICU nurse.
“This list was made by considering a number of factors to determine the hottest, most interesting nursing specialties that may help you fall in love with nursing again,” the article notes, adding that the factors considered include a growing demand, pay rate, job satisfaction, education requirements and conversations with nurses currently working in the fields.
