I wonder if I am crazy. I am contemplating returning to acute care. My old unit is willing to hire me perdiem for the summer. I really miss the floor. I am not sure if it is the staff I miss or the action of the acuity. All my friends who still work on the unit, keep telling me how bad it has become. But they are the same ones that always said it was too hectic.
In this time of nurses leaving the bedside--am I setting myself up for disappointment if I return. I have a cake job now- hours are mon-fri, 8-2:30. But I feel as if I am losing some of my skills. Esp. when I read some posts and feel so out of touch.
I have been working in acute care as an instructor--so I am not totally out of the ring. Has anyone been away and gone back to acute care?? Any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.
I am going to be the big 40 in a few months--maybe I want to relive my youth??? HA HA. It is more cost effective than having an affair:kiss
