Switching jobs

  1. I've recently switched from being a Mat-child nurse to STD nurse. I'm 6 months into my job, and am experiencing some growing pains. I enjoy my work so far but am having to adapt my nursing style to something more appropriate for this clinic setting.
    Needless to say , respect should be behind any interpersonal relationship-- i've found this area calls for a different approach from what i am used to with both co-workers and with my clients.
    i feel that i am adapting well... but do miss my patients and co-workers at my other job.
    Any tips or experiences you can share about switching workplaces or about STD nursing in general?

    Welcome to the site! We're glad you're here. I bet that job change would require a significant shift in your style, so I'm not surprised that there are some growing pains involved.

    I think you'll find Allnurses to be a great help whenever you're looking for nursing-related information.
