hi, i'm currently on a big dilemma right now. I'm working on a very busy
and highly stressful med-surg floor at a well known hospital in LA. Every time
I go to work, I drag my feet and honestly, I'm not happy there anymore. Yesterday,
my previous employer (which is another hospital but not that well-known and highly
rated) called me and asked me if i want a position, psychiatric outpatient nurse, hours
are awesome 8-430, no weekends, no holidays but ofcourse the pay will be like 8-10 bucks
less as a bedside nurse. I'm only 25 and I really dont know which specialty in nursing I'd like
to pursue at this time. Im planning to go back to school for NP and advance my degree
but im wondering how i would do it if i'd be working 5 days a week (and not to mention i have a 7 month old). i really need an advice from nurses who has been on the same
situation. right now all i know is im not cut out for bedside nursing. im too stressed
and im hurting my back.
any suggestion will be appreciated thanks!
