Quote from Kabin
You might be in denial or worse yet...
It's very competitive out there. It appears y
ou have no acute-care experience, you lack a BSN, and you seem to be bouncing around with many jobs over shortperiods of time.
What are you doing wrong? Don't expect the environment to change for you. Take responsibility for your own choices. Make changes. Think long and hard about what it is you want. Set your goal. And start acting on it. Expect it to take time.
Best of luck!
Hi, thank you for your candid response.
Yes, my major difficulty is that I do not have acute care experience. I was not blessed with a hospital job as a new grad.
I have student loans to pay and unable to secure proper funding to continue my education.
The reason I have acquire experience in different fields, it is not because I change practices, rather I work them all at the same time.
Most places I work for "prefer" part timers 32 hrs or less, no benefits, and less than the standard $25.00 an hr.
I like to keep my nursing skills sharp and practice wound vac care, PICC line infussions, urostomy/colostomy care, peds vent care, physiotherapy care, phlebotomy, medication management, and all out of my inmmaculate trunk.
I am paying my dues, and my goals are to help others heal, mend their wounds, help them control their pain, visit the sick and lonely seniors that live alone in their homes with no one to help them. What I want is the opportunity to learn more, gain more skills in the hospital setting to better help my community and be more educate, more skill.
I want to help others, but I need to know more so that I can help better.
Thank you for your time,
Syntia Alcantar, RN
