Just look at it as opportunity knocking and doors opening. Travel jobs translate to working vacations!!!!! The pay is such that you CAN afford to purchase your own health insurance and live very comfortably. I've been PRN for years and although I very happy with that position AND the pay AND the flexibility, I'm still not....(happy).....because everything is soooooo routine. That stack of papers in my box yesterday highlighting the days that I didn't get off the clock exactly 12 hours after getting on it was an eye opener. My question was, "Do they even know who I am???!!!! I'm that nurse who ONLY works two days a week AND those two are spaced out!!!! There's no way in hell I will EVER make any kind of overtime! And sometimes, one of those two days are cancelled due to low census. Yet they are wasting their ink on....ME??????" That kinda rubbed me the wrong way.
But, as luck would have it, on my long drive home this morning, an travel agency recruiter from the Sunshine State called and left a message for little ole me, of all people.
So, when I woke up, I immediately started getting the lead out my *** by finishing up my application for endorsement! If I'm gonna be hassled by patients, families, and bean counters alike, I might as well listen to it with a frozen banana-mango daiquiri (virgin, of course
, in my hands while sprawled out on the beach rather than in a bottleneck oof a city street!
I don't have a beach body but I can still put this body on a beach! And from what I've seen of some of the most brazen women on this earth, in the words of Denzel Washington in his role in the movie Training Day, "King Kong ain't got nothing on me!"
Good luck to you, OP! Hope to see you on the pier!
