My first job was in a long term care facility as the ONLY RN and nursing supervisor. I left after three months, staying two months and three weeks longer than I should have! LOL I went from there to a hospital, worked on the surgical care unit for one year, then left there to go into critical care, lasted three months at that hospital, went back to the first. (I stayed as a casual employee), then tried Critical care at another hospital, hated it, and now do Casual at my original hospital as well as agency nursing. I like the flexibility of working PRN. It gives me an opportunity to work in different areas, at the hospital I can work ER, ICU, step down, surgical care, all of them except OB. OB is not an area I care to work in. Also, I can work around my daughter's school activities and work at my home-based business.
It is easy to get bored in surgery, During nursing school that was one area that I knew I would not like to work in. I missed talking to my patients, patients cant' talk during surgery. LOL
