I quit my job at the hospital where I've worked for the last 12 years. I accepted a per diem position at an outpatient surgery center. Has anyone else made a move like this? How did it work out for you? I'm so excited and I hope I don't regret the move. It's hard to give up all the benefits and seniority... especially after being so comfortable for so long. I've wanted to move to the surgery center for a while now. I was hoping to get a part time or full time spot there, but decided to go for the per diem spot since that's all they have right now (it's so hard to get in there - I don't dare pass up, even on a per diem opening). I'm hoping it will turn into more in the future. I love the idea that I won't ever have to be on call again, no more nights, weekends or holidays!
Any thoughts you all have would be much appreciated.
