I just relocated from Missouri to Florida. Took a job at a small local hospital in the area and am going absolutely bonkers!!! I can NOT stand to be there another day! The way they do things is just so wrong on many levels. I came from a very large hospital and that is what I am used to but in seeking new opportunities, stepped up to the challenge to try something new.
Needless to say, I am now in a world full of regret!! I have NEVER EVER in my life hated my job as much as do there. I am sad to say I would rather quit my job and be a bartender than work another day there under the current circumstances. It really hurts me to say that bc I love being a nurse but it's true
I am not one to slander another, so I won't mention the name of the hospital specifically nor the area (bc that's almost a dead giveaway as well) but I will give a few choice names of hospitals I am very interested in working for.....and have thoroughly researched this time around (lol)......
Tampa General would be my ultimate choice but I just can't do that commute everyday, it would kill me! So, sadly I have to eliminate that option....
But....Sarasota Memorial.....that is much closer, it's a larger hospital, a teaching hospital, magnet, award winning beacon ICU, and from what I found has a very good cardiac program
Anyone have any leads or contact persons for their CVICU??? I have been in CVICU for 9 years, have tons of experience with that patient population and that's where my heart is. I have searched their career page virtually everyday looking for an open position there and have yet to find one in that specific unit.
I LOVE Florida but my job is a very important part of my life and not liking where I am currently really has me contemplating moving back to Missouri.
Any advice or help to offer?? Please
