Thanks for letting me know what you decided bjm. I have a feeling you made the right choice for yourself. Part of the reason I took my position was also to learn something new in the nursing field. The worst that can happen is that you do not like it. There are so many opportunities for us nurses that you can move on to something else if need be.
I have been at my new job for six weeks now, and I am very happy with my decision to take this position. I actually look forward to going to work for the first time in a long while! It is interesting work and I enjoy the smaller group I work with now.
It has been very nice talking with you, and I hope you are very happy at your new nursing job. I think your gut is telling you that you made the right choice!! When do you start? Let me know how it goes after you have been there a little while. Congratulations.
