I work in a hospital on a busy med-surg floor and I have been asking other coworkers if they like their job and if they are happy and I haven't gotten positive responses.I have been working there a year and a half and Ihave considered getting a different job but I won't leave this one until I have something secure(health insurance is an issue).That's why I
cant work per diem. Any suggestions for a nonhospital job?

It is impossible to make a recomendation to someone I do not know. In fact, I would, with a close friend, rather listen and see where their thoughts and dreams are headed. I would encourage you and others to follow your dreams.
Try going to the Human Resources list for your facility (and others) and see what is available. Dream about different positions, try them on mentally, talk with colleagues who are successful do various types of nursing, check out conversations on other Forums here at AllNurses (many of them have a typical day as a ****), and go back to the basics of what you like in your current job.
I agree, after a year plus in m/s, if you do not feel happy, then try something new. After all, Nursing is very flexible to a change in specialties.
I hope you find something that makes you happy, that you can grow in and from, and a field that is rewarding.
Let us know how you are doing
