Thanks to all of you for the suggestions.
Madwife2002, inexperienced micromanagement, is a very good description of what I'm feeling. I just coun't see it.
I would love a job in teaching. I have a BSN, but not a masters and teaching jobs are hard to come by.
This is such a tough job market. I see jobs that I want to apply for but they are registry or as needed jobs. I need to
work at least 32 hrs and have health insurance, so I don't apply. I'm willing to take a $10 pay cut, and would love to work
32 hrs. I've looked into home care, but I'm just not good at driving the highways even with the gps. I'm willing to work
hard, without the politics and unrealistic expections that I see in dialysis. I know there is some stress in every job, but
the nursing turnover in my region is ridiculours. I'm so sorry, I stayed so long. I though it would be easier to get out. I
sometimes hear that nursing has so many opportunities, but I think once you stay too long in a specialty, a nurse like myself
is not marketable or attractive to future employers
. I send out resumes and don't hear a word and I went on two interviews
and was basically asked "what else have you done". I don't understand because dialysis nurses do so much ie..iv skills, dressings changes, patient education, adjusting medications per algorithm, setting up machines, supervision of other health care workers, patient assessments, medication administration. Dialysis patients have so many other health care issues that the nurse must also understand and be able to address while taking care of the renal patient.
