What are low stress nursing specialties?

September 21st, 2021

None… to be empathetic, to be nurturing, to be an advocate… it’s stressful. Try treating someone who you completely despise their life choice if drug use, you do not have to agree but you have to try and understand why and treat them anyways. To administer a bed bath to a drunken man after his poor choices killed a family of four, is hard. To have six sets of parents yelling at the pediatrics office, stressful. Med/surg stressful because the acuity may be easier but you get the quantity of patients increased. L&D is not always sunshine and rainbows, and those hurt. No nurse job is I stressful… the stress is just different. Even teaching, the responsibility of knowing that you trained that person.. is stressful. My answer is none!

None. The type of stress varies, but nursing is stressful by nature because you're dealing with sick people and those experiencing some kind of health crisis.
