Hey, I'm new to the forum. I have only been a RN for 5+ years, in the medical field for about 8. Loved my job as a labor and delivery nurse, until I herniated a disk lifting a patient. 4 months into my "light duty" I came to the realization that my dream job would no longer be for me and I left the hospital I thought I would be retiring from some day. I quickly found a job at an outpt surgery center, and after 3 months things were not working out well at all. I was used to nurturing and spending time with my patients. Not herding cattle. Anyway, I am now at an office, which is a huge transition. I am trying to be patient and grateful for having a job, but sometimes I feel like if I can't do what I went to college to do (L &D) then maybe I should do something else. Any thoughts? Anyone able to relate?
