Hey guys!! New here and I thought maybe you guys could give me some insight. I have been a nurse for 7 whole years. Long time right? I have been in L&D the whole time except for 4 months when I did ICU. I hate to go to work and I dread the days that I have to work. I want to call out all the time, but I don't. I have more patience with my patients than I do with my own children and I know that is not right. I work with great people in a nice hospital on night shift. I just don't know where all this is coming from. Have any of you felt this way? I have looked at other jobs, but the only thing close to me are 2 teaching hospitals and small, small hospitals. HELP
I really don't know what else I would do besides OB.
Thanks a bunch just for reading!!

You know where I stand on this...YOU CAN'T LEAVE UNLESS I DO!!
Called Wake Med N. Rec. today...ER internship for experienced (as in no ER experience, but no new grads) nurses there. 12 weeks, and they take you on the premise that they know you're totally clueless. Going to see how much $$ they'll throw at me, and if the hours are decent, I may jump. If I do, I'll of course stay RSP 'at home,' working a shift once a week just to keep my hand in OB 'cause you know I could never leave it...LOL! Got the blessing from the hubby today.
I'll keep looking and tell you about any hot prospects. You know I luvs ya, girl!!
