This sounds like a theme on this board but I needed a safe place to think this through.
I'm a second degree BSN, meaning I had a degree and a career before going back to school to become a nurse. I went into nursing thinking I would go one of three routes, ICU and work for Midwest Organ Transplant or UNOS on donor matching. Use my fabulous MBA and go into hospital administration, or Go the L&D route get my DPn. and work in a dr. office. These being long term goals of course.
Given the conflicted state of my options I decided a Medical Surgical Floor would be a great place to hang out for a year and ponder my future. Knowing full well that I did't care much for Med/Surge during school, but adored ICU, NICU and L&D. I took a job, working days on what was supposed to be a Women's Care/ Med Surg floor with an emphasis on surgical.
CPOE roled out half the surgeons and OB/GYN's left and took their surgeries elsewhere. Leaving the floor with an internal medicine focus. My LEAST favorite!! I've been here for 5 months now and am miserable!!
Today submitted my resume for a L&D, mother baby job at another hospital, on a whimm of course, and HR called for an interview. Now what? complicating matters I'm pregnant and due in November. I'm still a new grad, so how much of this need to move on change is a new grad thing, hormones, or being in a bad place .
I need input, questions, things to think about....
I currently work days, lets start there!!
