So, I am in the process of searching for a full time nursing position so I can leave my second job. So far, there are no offers except for numerous shifts at the nursing job I currently work part time at, a skilled nursing facility. At $26.52/hr, the wage is not what you would expect a nurse with a BSN to be making, nor is this type of nursing really meant for nurses who have BSN degrees. Because of this, I have been applying to the employer I have always dreamt of working as a nurse at, to positions that would pay at least $32/hr, which is more reasonable for a BSN nurse to be making. So far, all of decent paying positions have sent rejections. One possibility would be to apply to a skilled nursing facility associated with this employer so I could just have one job. However, the pay, at $23/hr, is unacceptable. I am looking to increase my pay, not decrease it. I do well in these types of nursing jobs
, but as I mentioned, they do not meet my pay expectations. The jobs that meet or exceed my pay expectations do not appear to be interested or a good fit for me. Not sure what I should do. Should I possibly leave the nursing profession if I cannot find a good job with good pay?
