I recently made the same decision as you. I have worked inpatient my entire career thus far. In January, I began applying to per diem positions with the idea that I would drop my hours at the hospital to "ease my way out". Well, that plan went out the window as soon as I went through the process of actually applying for jobs and interviewing and I realized that I have marketable skills and there's no reason to put up with the BS and abuse I deal with every day in my current job. The first day I worked at my 2nd job, I left there thinking, "I left on time, I ate lunch and no one yelled at me"... felt like some kind of alternate reality but definitely something I could get used to! I never thought I'd want to work M-F but I am finding more and more that that IS what I want. I have no consistency in my schedule at my current job (only 20 days left 'til I'm done!) and I can't even count on the fact that they'll give me a day off if I need it for a doctor's appointment. In my new job, I'll be able to just leave early or come in late if I have an appointment and arrange my hours around it.
