OK, since I am stuck in med-surg for now
I was thinking of making my transfer into the NICU in December/January. That will be 6 months and when I will be allowed to transfer into the NICU.
Has it been really hard to hire those from med-surg floors into NICU. That is my biggest concern.
I just started in med-surg and I realize that I am NOT going to last in it at all. My heart is not in the right place and I know with everything I have ever done in my life. If my heart is not there I am not going to last. I am just hoping I will make it 6 months without quitting nursing all together.
If I can't do NICU then I am going to do Postpartum/Nursery if a position becomes available and that way at least I will be closer to maybe possibly getting into the NICU later on down the road.
Ok, sorry for venting. This is just so frustrating. I had a interview in one NICU at a different hospital from where I was working but I was not hired they had so many people they had to choose from. I pretended in the beginning not the be disappointed but it was very disappinting and now I just want to get over it. I feel like a baby and that I don't want to be at all and I feel really bad about the way I feel.
It should not matter if I am in Med-Surg I should want to help people and just do it. Right??
All I can do is keep my fingers cross and remain hopeful.
