lol, yes, as a previous poster mentioned, your question is not the typical one. Usually, it's..."How do I get out of bedside nursing?" Though I do understand where you're coming from, just one of those things. You're curious to try it since you never have; I would probably be the same way (I'm working in a hospital now). And, I enjoy my work, and a nurse's experience in hospital nursing is dependent on numerous things: 1). quality of hospital/nurse/patient ratios 2). quality of management on unit 3). quality of nurses on unit, are they dependable, team players, non-toxic/gossipy types. 4). emotional intelligence of the nurse (can they handle the stress, is the unit they are on the best fit for them? etc). 5). Some people forget that nursing is hard work, just is.
So, if you find a unit that suits you, and the management/people on the unit are good to work with, you can have an enjoyable time. Most nurses just get tired of shift work/weekends over time. I'm mainly just ready to be off night shift so I can sleep well again, but I have no other complaints. Just waiting my turn for days on my unit, should be in the near future.
What I would suggest to you: take a nursing refresher course as the PP mentioned. Also, make sure your BLS is up to date, and also get your ACLS if you don't have it already. (or PALS if you're interested in peds). Yes, it's not cheap, but it will make you more marketable. Also, do some CEU's in an area that you're interested in...if interested in oncology, then take a CEU course in oncology, and add it to the old resume. Also, make sure your resume is flawless, concise. Best of luck!
