An RPN Turned LPN in Toronto

Under 2 years and already burnt out. I wish I had not taken nursing. They make it as hard as possible for you. I work in Toronto, and there is little full time work. I work at an in-house agency that was started by the owners of a LTC. This way they can hire full time for their place but since it is an agency I get no benefits.

In addition to nursing where I work by myself at night with no assistance, I have all the calls in the building come to me and interrupt me as I try to work. I am constantly scared since I have too much responsibility and not enough assistance. I am going to take some continuing ed courses to try to specialize so I can focus on one area of nursing wish me luck!

I love the patients but hospitals and LTC make it impossible. Do not go into this field!
