It depends on what area of nursing you moving to. I have taken several pay cuts, but did so in order to chang3 my focus. When I left the hospital for a hospice position, I took a pay cut. When I left hospice to teach nursing, I took a pay cut. If just depends on the situation.
You have q good point. Many nurses complain and they have good reason to. Our health csre system is operated by those who measure success in dollars, not in people. That being said, compromising patient care becsuse of one's attitude is not OK. Instead, get involv3d and work for change. Join nursing organizations, get politically involved and vote as a nurse. I have been a nurse for 22 years and I don't regret it.
I am a hospice nurse and am also in an RN to BSN program. For my capstone I have requested to complete the requirements in a parish nurse program. This article speaks to exactly why I am going this direction. Thank you for sharing.
