I just graguated this past august and started working on a cardiac unit - but i hate it because it has turned out to be a dumping ground. We basically get all the patients no one else wants to deal with. We have lots of pts that are total care and not enough staff. I feel miserable and absolutely dread going to work.
I have three months left before I can transfer and they can't go by soon enough.
Well I just had to vent and this is the best place to come because I know someone here understands.

Thanks for the thoughtfull replies. I thought I was the only one there hating my job, but just about everyone there is miserable.
I really want to work in the ER, but thought I should get some floor experience first. I can not stay on that floor for a year. I really like the hospital as a whole and do not want to quit, but I will go else where if the ER there won't take me. I trying to take ACLS any TNCC first though- Anyone have and web sites or helpful links on ACLS/TNCC?
I would try to tranfer now, but i signed a contract for a sign-on
bonus of $4000 and it states that i have to work on that floor for 6months or i will have to repay it. If it weren't so close to Christmas i would'nt care; and I only have about 3months left anyway so I'm trying to stick with it.
