I've been on this site before but never really posted a thread like the one I'm about to write- I'm dearly confused and would love input from anyone who is kind enough to spare some time.
I graduated with my BSN in 08/2010 and passed my boards on 10/2010. Since then I've worked/volunteered at a clinic site for a few months but then tried my luck with working in a SNF for a week. That one week was seven days too long- without going into much detail (as many already know of the complexities of a SNF), the facility was practicing in ways that I didn't agree with both personally and professionally, so I left. My thought at the time was to return to school and get my MSN in administration or FNP. Well during this time I was given a job offer for Worker's Comp Field Nurse Case Management. The job is tolerable and as much as I want to say I love the work...I don't. I soon realized that I went to school to become a clinical nurse- a NICU, L&D, or Mother/Baby nurse to be exact.
Now my question goes to all of the experienced CMs or experienced RNs...am I right in my mind to think this? Or am I in the whole, "the grass is greener on the other side," phase. Should I be thankful for the job I have and roll with the punches? Or should I work and concurrently pursue my dreams?
Please be kind in responses- I'm not looking for a huge debate, just some guidance. Thank-you in advance to all those who are willing to respond, it is greatly appreciated.
