    I think that it really depends on who you work with and the kind of work atmosphere that you have. I have been working in the same hospital for three years now and I haven't considered changing jobs mainly because my coworkers are all generally nice, except for one or two whom I can tolerate on most days.

    You have your own reasons for changing jobs and that's understandable. We all lead different lives and make our own choices. So, if you feel your workplace isn't the one for you, try working at other hospitals.
