Help!! I haven a nurse for 18 years. I worked as a staff nurse for most of my career at 2 hospitals. I finished my MSN in Nursing Education last year. I took a part time job as a Staff Development Coordinator in a rehab setting for 8 months, then left to return to the hospital that I had worked for 6 years as a Clinical Educator. I have been in the educator role now for 18 months & I am still struggling with the role change. Although working the floor is exhausting, I always left feeling I advocated & cared for my patients best I could. Now I feel so defeated and confused about the management & administration of healthcare! The nursing staff is overworked & due to budget cuts we are closing units. I know that this is not for me at all. I feel sad because I do love bedside nursing & teaching nurses has always been a goal for me. I am enrolled to begin school again in the spring for an Adult/Geriatric NP. I know the problems with management & administration will not go away, but I will at least have more options for employment. I was going to transfer into a part time staff position and go to school full time. Some say it is a great idea that is what nursing is about finding your place. I am worried my employer will be upset, and this would be 2 jobs with less than 1 year on my resume. I would never want that to keep me from getting another job. I have worked very hard, and I also have 2 national certifications. Advice??
