Need advice. Change jobs or stay where I am?

  1. 0 Im in RN school and about half way through. I've had CNA experience (two years in home health and 2 years in a LTC). After trying for almost a year to get a CNA job at our local hospital I finally gave up and applied for everything possible and ended up getting a job in dietary.

    While I have learned quite a bit about nutrition and diet types but I dont feel there is any more to learn in this department. I currently work 3rd shift and have TONS of downtime. I literally work maybe 3 out of 8 hours a night, so I have plenty of time to study.

    On the other hand I have been there long enought to transfer out of the department. I've been looking at several CNA or Tech postions all of which Im qualifed to do. If i did change jobs I'd make more money and be doing more hands on things and could observe the nurses somewhat.

    So if you were in my place would you do?

    If money is an issue switch otherwise I would stick to my current schedule and use that time to study.

    Nope, money isn't the issue at all.

    If I were you. I would keep the current dieatary job and use the rest of that time for studying HOWEVER, I also feel like you should do what is best for you and outweigh your pros and cons for switching and staying with the job as well.
