Did the same thing you are doing for the some of the same reasons.
had a LPN position where I had worked in the same facility for almost 10 yrs. but was in a place where they didn't want me to work in other departments, I felt traped, felt like I couldnt grow. so went to another facility 20 miles from my old facility where they allowed me to work in just about all departments. took a $3 pay cut but -- Better benifits, Better education program which reimbursed me for my RN. now making more that I ever expected. : ) (but if the truth were known I would do this job without pay)
