You might try home health.. you have the experience for it.. driving is heavy so make sure you are okay with that.. It is not as physical as reg bedside nursing. Most have call but usually you can plan that one ahead of time. You may find you have to do computer work in evening, especailly starting out but usually hours are 8-5. I have a urostomy and I can do the visits.. I did not do visits the first year I had it.
And I am not saying do visits forever.. sometimes management opens up but tends to be like what you have now.. but you could go to online school while working home health and get BSN. So it might take awhile if you can not do it real fast.. you got time. Consider what you might want to be.. Nurse educator you could do from a wheelchair if needed.
I will say stay out of LTC as they will want you as mgr and it will be the same as you have now.
If CEO is approachable,, why not just ask for some professional advice... make it vague if you need to,, just ask about future opportunities with the organization. Avoid the crazy boss all together. Document what you do,, how many times you have to be charge etc.. CYA...Be nice to her,...make it a game if needed. the nicer you are the more she will wonder what you are up to?? Mess with her mind! I really don't see as you have much to lose.. if she tries to fire you..CEO/Board might get involved!!!
But if you can not wait and it will take much time to actually get better even if it is going to.. try something else.. Try clinic settings, some use RN"s.. try Blood banks/ companies for Occupational nurses, try infection control..might have to spring for a class or two but would be worth it to have options. Consider ins companies, medical review companies. Go on some internet career sites and type in non-traditional nursing jobs
,, I get some amazing job listings. Best of luck.
