I want to set myself up for success by going through a nurse residency program (as my first RN job). I want thorough training. However, I’ve lost some of my enthusiasm about nursing. I’ve been questioning if its really for me. It’s mostly the lack of confidence in my people skills and low stress tolerance. I did very well in school but I didn’t get enough clinical exposure because of the pandemic. I keep talking myself out of applying since I don’t think I’ll interview well with this mindset.

I hear you. Although I wasn't in school during the pandemic, I had a bad clinical experience and was not confident in my skills, both nursing and people skills, post graduation. It got better with time, so do your best not to dwell on the current situation.

There are plenty of non-patient care nursing careers. If you can tolerate a year on the floor, preferably a tele/med surg unit, you can try transitioning to case management (discharge planning) or utilization management (clinical and insurance criteria). There's also clinical documentation specialists that specialize in medical coding and physician documentation. All very good and fulfilling careers for nurses.

I really appreciate your advice. It helps hearing from other nurses. Especially because you understand. Thank you :)

Agree w what was said above and also you could fry epic/IT roles or research roles.
