How to refresh myself|
I read an interesting news article today.
According to the article, one out of twenty-three nurses in Japan has been working more than 60 hours' overtime every month.
It means about 20,000 nurses are facing crises of death from overwork.
On the other hand, I think nurses tend to be willing to work seriously since they choose to become nurses even though it is said that nursing has all three of the following K's:
K : Kitsui（きつい） = heavy work
K : Kitanai（汚い） = dirty work
K : Kiken（危険） = dangerous work
Many nurses do resign every year, and the cause of the resignation is sometimes burnout syndrome.
The Japanese Nursing Association shows the rate of nurses leaving jobs is about 12%.
It means one out of about eight nurses resign every year.
If I calculate back, the rate of nurses not leaving jobs is about 88%.
According to a simple calculation, half of nurses will resign within six years and nurses who remain until retirement are only one out of about a hundred people.
Of course, that is a just simple calculation, but according to that I may not be able to continue my job until my retirement.
In order to prevent getting burnt out and having to quit my job early, I need to consider how to refresh myself.
