Got My Dream Job! - page 2

I got hired for the job I wanted in a clinic. Many nurses act like it isn't real nursing, but I am so happy to get this job. No more 12 hour shifts in LTC or a hospital, which were both frightfully... Read More

    Enjoy your new job and dont let those other over work nurses tell you it is not a real job. They are too busy working there 12 hour shift to be happy for you. Eventually, they will come around.

    Go girl!!! Don't listen to grumpy nurses. Every nurse needs to find their niche. LTC simply wasn't yours. I also did LTC for 7 months and wanted to quit nursing. Now I do Clinic/Urgent care and I've fallen in love with nursing again. I am now planning to get my RN, now that was unthinkable 2 years ago!!!

    who cares what others think, congrats! I had to take a 4 month break from nursing after leaving LTC. I thought I was done with nursing and was about to go to college for something else when a family clinic called me in for a job, and I love my career again. The pay cut is worth it every single day I dont have to walk into a LTC facility.

    I did love my residents and cna's at LTC. The 2-10 shift was like a family. I just can't take the emotional and physical demands anymore. My youngest child just left for college, so this seems like the perfect time to get the job I really want. The hospital was almost an hour away and 12 hour shifts.

    Congratulations! I'd love to find my dream job, but I don't know what it is. I currently work in LTC and its very close to where I live. With the way jobs are so hard to get these days I don't dare leave. One would feel like working in nursing, that you'd have pretty good job security, right? I don't feel that way where I work, seem to be lately they fire employees at the drop of a hat. It makes me wonder from one day to the next if I'll have a job or not. I do my job and do it well, but so have others that have been let go. I'm very pleased you got your dream job and I hope it turns out to be all that you want it to be. Once again, congratulations!
