[font=Comic Sans MS]I am very young and very entergetic, I came from the ER, I really needed a break from total chaos. I love the GI job and the patients but I feel as if I hit a dead stop, the clinic I work in does maybe 5-7 cases/daily (Sort of slow) in an 8 hours shift. The nurses I work with think they are overwhelmed and busy, and I feel like I am running circles around them. Am I wrong???? Any advice for a really confused new GI RN? Thanks
[font=Comic Sans MS]Funny thing is I get paid $2.00/hour more to sit and read a magazine when all our work is done, vs underpaid and overworked in the ER. Puzzling isnt it.

regardless of the pay and work or lack there of in your case, you have to be satisfied with your job. our jobs consume a large part of our life. nurses can burn out from boredom or lack of job satisfaction just the same. if you feel the job is bringing your spirit down, i would consider a job transfer. if you truly like gi nursing, i can assure you there are plenty of endoscopy units out there that will work you. i leave my job some days totally exhausted from not being able to sit down or even take a full 30 minute lunch. i go insane when we have several cancellations or no shows & we aren't busy enough.
