I have been a RN for 7 years. I have worked in the med/surg, rehab and now ambulatory surgery center. My job is easy and most of the time I don't even have to go in (still get paid) because we don't have any cases. My only problem is the people who I work with. I cannot stand them just sitting around and do nothing. I end up being the only one who takes care of the patients all the time. I am sick of their gossips and sick of their attitude.
I am seriously considering changing my career. I want to travel and I want to take vacations too. I used to be a flight attendant when I was young and I did that for 3 years. The only reason why I did not work as a flight attendant for long because I was sick of being alone. Now I am married and I have a stable family, I really don't mind taking some time to travel and make some money. My only worry is the money that I am going to bring in to the family. It might mean a big pay cut. I really don't know what to do now. I know there are mean people everywhere but it seems to me that there are mean people in the medical industry than anywhere else. I really don't know what I should do now. I feel like I am in a dead end job. I wish my coworkers can disappear and life would be so much better.
