    Home health or private duty nursing. I worked private duty and the only nurse I saw was the one who relieved me in the AM.
    I liked it. But I also like sharing a shift with nurses who endure the 12 hrs with me. Something about shared pain and shared pleasure.

    Bullying.

    I worked in a nursing home and was bullied by other CNAs. I must give off victim energy because I attract bullies quite often

    School nursing. You are the only nurse in the building!

    I work night shift in LTC and on my unit, it's usually just me and two CNA's. It's nice.
    I know you say you've been bullied by CNA's; have you ever tried nights? To me,
    night shift attracts a different type of person.

    One of my coworkers used to work in hospice. She said she charted at home in the morning. Then she'd start seeing patients in their homes at about 9am. She would be done seeing patients by 2:30 and then went home to finish charting. Maybe this kind of job would work for you.

    I also worked night shift alone as an LPN with 2 CNAs. I like nights because I think there is more camaraderie.

    I'm wondering how much experience you have if you're asking IF there's these kinds of jobs, when it seems to me a nurse who's been working at all would know that there are single-nurse places.

    If you have the experience for the options people have given you here, it sounds like you might want to try them. If you are brand new, well....you aren't qualified for any of them.

    What's the situation?

    It could just be coincidence, but I've noticed the more uptight and "mean" nurses and aides work day shift where I work. At my last job, too. Evening and night shift staff seem more laid back. I wonder why that is.

    I'm with the night shift peope. Worked for a short while as a CNA in nursing school. It was great at night. Me and 21 folks in an AD lock in unit. Once a nurse, I worked the night shift and took days when asked to pick up extra shifts. Day shift definately more "henny, gossipy," and they had the gangup mentality. Night shift, everyone backed everyone up. We appreciated our CNAs a ton, and I still do. Definately try nights.

    try immunization clinics. Its a big business that hires people through the internet and sends you off to a site to give flu shots and other immunizations. Its based out of one state, but they have sites all over the US. It was frightfully boring for me, but I would do it again The pay wasn't bad, the job was easy, and there were no worries. There was the chance of an adverse reaction, but for me it didn't happen, and its rare to occur.
