I was a stay at home mom and then decided to do something "useful" with the years I have remaining - and on a see how it goes basis entered nursing school
. (I was 52 at the time). I didn't start hating school until we started clinicals. Long story short, Between bipolar instructors and just not knowing much about anything medical, I hated nursing. However, I had so much money now involved that I stuck it out and graduated.
I am on my second job in 3 mos. and hate it more and hate myself for ever doing this. The only part of it that I like is the patient interaction. My patients love me and always praise the care and attention I give them (other nurses are more proficient but some are downright rude to the patients - I recommend they mention that on the evaluations they are sent after returning home).
Anyway, anybody got any suggestions - please. I know that there are a lot of fields to explore but there don't seem to be any job openings in clinics (which I think I would enjoy far more.) How do I go about applying for a job if there aren't any in the local newspaper want ads?
