Are you starting to feel old and out of sync with your current nursing position? Before you panic, this might be the first sign that you are starting to enter the pre-retirement phase.

2. You are getting more and more frustrated with healthcare because of all the high-tech, de-personalization, and focus on making money
3. Your workplace has "lost its loving feeling" like it had in the past
4. Going to work isn't fun anymore
5. You find yourself complaining more
6. You are taking more and more meds for stress and health issues
7. You know you are wise, skilled, and no one does it better than you, but it feels like no one cares
8. You're starting to think you don't fit in anymore
9. You're wondering if the end of your career is near
10. You don't know what to do about all of this
