new girl on the post it block

  1. Hi My name is Janet from the Boston area. I have been a nurse for 2years a second career. My last position was in the MICU/SICU full time with day night rotation. I left since we were only allowed to work 12 hr shifts and they wanted at least 36/hrs a week commitment. I have a 12 yr old son who was getting upset that I wasn't around enough. I am now looking for possible per diem or part time. Nursing as much as I like it can be very demanding. I loved critical care, (though the only other position I had was on a very crazy med/surg floor my first year of nursing. The 7a-7p shift most of the time we would not leave until 9p and not get paid, some would be leaving after that even). but felt I must give it up for now till my son gets a little older and goes through the phase of mostly wanting to be with his friends and not seen with his mother ! thanks for listening
