I have over 4 years of experience, 2 as an LPN and 2.5 yrs as an RN but feel stuck in regards to my clinical background. I have worked Skilled care, Med-Surg, Sub-acute care, and Rehab. I've been trying for the past year to secure a position in Telemetry or ICU. I am ACLS certified as well. But everytime I apply for a Tele or ICU position I am always steered towards Med-Surg. I don't want to work Med-Surg...been there done that and it wasn't for me. The one time I was offered a tele position it was for nights and I turned it down because I already work nights and I am trying desparately to get off that shift. I feel like I am being type casted for nights. I know what I want but not getting it. I want day shift and I want tele or ICU. I did my time. Ready to just throw in the towel, leave bedside care, and explore other options. I'm at the point of saying that I am done...tired in the Chi!!! If I can't get what I want then fudge it. Nursing has become a job and not a career in my eyes.
