Okay, I was wrong. I have made some mistakes. Now, I would like to get past them and find a job for which I am suited. I want to be a good nurse, being good at what ever job I end up in.
I am having a difficult time finding a job. At all. I am feeling that I have been black balled but, I can not prove it. I called a hospital KNOWING they needed another night shift RN. KNOWING it was posted, KNOWING it had not been filled yet. I was told, "No, we don't need anymore RNs right now."
I would like to stay here in my little rural town. I do not want to drive. I drove three hours everyday at my last job. I was exhausted. The exhaustion was what lead to me being discharged from my last job.
I would prefer not to go back to Med-surg. I am good at it but I intensely dislike it. I feel like I don't have time to connect and really "care" about the People (not patients) that I am taking care of. I feel a lot like I am pushing Iv meds or pills and wasting ink on endless reams of paperwork.
I have a certificate in Diagnostic Medical ultrasound, with a specialty orientation in OB/GYN small parts, and Abdomens. I really liked Labor and Delivery. But what I enjoy even more is education. Helping People lead better healthier lives through education about everything. Diet, Exercise, disease pathology, etiology and prognosis.
I am telemetry competent, ACLS trained and I am getting my PALS certification later this month.
Any suggestions would be helpful. I am desperate at this point.
