Advice for making a complete switch...

  1. Hi I was just wondering if anyone had any advice for me. I am a somewhat recent grad (3 years working) I have only ever done NICU as this was where I did my practicum...I am completely bored in my job and absoultely hate the politics at my work..I feel like I need a complete change...I have always had an interest in Emerg but adult not pediatrics...my problem is I have NO IDEA how to care for an adult patient...I feel like I forgot everything from school...Im also scared to make a change and become embarassed that I know nothing and have to come crawling back to my place of work...I just feel in such a rut...any advice???

    If you hate it go somewhere else!!! No point in being miserable!! You probably didn't "forget" as much as you think! If I were you, I would just review a little bit, get some of those "handy" notes to keep with you. Most hospitals will have you orient with a preceptor before they put you out on your own, too. If you can do NICU, you can go anywhere. Just remember adults are just a 'bit' heavier
    Good luck, I hope you find what you are looking for! Don't stop til you do!!!:icon_hug:
