Take a minute to be honest with yourself as you contemplate this question: Has your nursing job started to feel a bit ho-hum and routine? Do you feel like there’s not a lot of spark left in your career or that you’re stuck in a rut? Maybe you can’t help but wonder if you’d be happier in a different specialty or even in another field altogether? If so, you’re not alone. Research on nurses’ work satisfaction indicates that even when nurses love their patients, many aren’t entirely happy with their careers.
Why Nurses Who Love Their Patients Can Still Be Dissatisfied With Their Careers
When nurses lose their spark for their career, it can be for many reasons—almost none of which have anything to do with patients. (Nurses report that making a difference in patients’ lives is the best part of their job.) Instead, a poll of 1,000 nursing professionals found that the top two reasons for career dissatisfaction were:
- Burn out: Many nurses find they are working longer and longer hours with more and more responsibility but without commensurate resources, support, compensation, or appreciation. In fact, An RNnetwork study found that 70% of nurses feel this way to the point of having thought about leaving the profession.
- Office politics: In hospital environments, nurses are often forced to navigate complex power dynamics that can be mentally and emotionally taxing. And due to pandemic-related tensions in the nursing profession, more and more nurses feel captive to stressful work environments.
Why Botox and Dermal Filler Training Can Be the Solution to Burnout and More
One of the best things about aesthetic medicine is that it’s all but immune to the risk of burnout and the threat of office politics that can suck the life out of your nursing career. For one, aesthetics nurses work a traditional 9-5 schedule with weekends and holidays off. Because medical aesthetics procedures are elective rather than medically necessary, the chances that you’ll find yourself working long or unpredictable hours are practically nil.
Second, aesthetic medicine is practiced in small, personal, inviting, and often luxurious settings that couldn’t be farther removed from a hospital environment and its political machinery. For this reason, power dynamics between administrators and staff are far less complex, and friction tends to be dramatically reduced, making for a far more hospitable work climate.
Last, because aesthetic medicine allows you to practice at the intersection of art and science, Botox and dermal filler training can help you rediscover the creative side of yourself and reintegrate it into your work. This will make your profession feel that much more inspiring, engaging, and fulfilling. By learning to apply the principles of aesthetic medicine in highly personalized ways, you’ll function as much like an artist as a healthcare professional, leaving your clients thrilled in the process.
If you’re ready to leave burnout and office politics behind with a career in aesthetic medicine, taking an aesthetics training course can be one of the most awesome nursing career moves you’ll ever make.
