I am a nurse who is currently working in ICU for the past 4 months. I am planning on working here for atleast 1 year. I am still unsure if ICU is for me. I worked as an Agency nurse as an LPN and loved it.I know this is where I want to be(AGENCY) but I pretty much had to start from scratch and could not work agency as new RN.
So now here I am wanting to do agency for the future and am looking at other specialties to work in. OR, Oncology,etc. If I pick another specialty would it be easy to find agency work??Im afraid if I change specialties to something I feel suits me better that I would not get staffed at an agency. I am so confused. Im a pretty laid back person and I like my days to be as such. ICU has never been that . I am frazzled when I go home at night and stressed before i go in..I want to pay my dues and have a specialty to call my own......
From someone who wants the freedom back in her life someday to spend with her family and would love to travel nurse someday....please , please help
I am in Cincinnati, OH if that helps any.
