Background: I have 3 years LPN exp. and I started in ICU as a new grad RN last year,I left after 8 months due to hostile work enviroment. After that, I got hired full time nights in the ED. I'm not cut out for nights, I know my body and nights is not for me. I accepted the job because it was the closet to me and seem to be the best choice at the time. I'm one month into my orientation at the ED. Even though I don't like nights and feel that I'm constantly flustered with the pace of the ED, I absoutely LOVE the nurses I work with.
I have never met such a great group of nurses, who are supportive and ever so kind. I get along with most of the docs and my NM, seems great too. My ultimate goal is to be a PP nurse, however I've been on interviews and haven't been selected so I have no choice but to work in other specialties. My current job will allow transfer after 6 months, however the hospital where the ICU job, rejected me for the PP position when I applied a few months back.
I really rather stay in the ED, but only if it is part time. I'm so afraid to ask, being that I'm so new.
I cannot do FT nights anymore, it really is ruining my life.....
