I am a nurse with almost five years experience and work in intensive care. However, I am interested in exploring a different specialty. I really enjoy what I do (except for some compassion fatigue at times) but weekends and ESPECIALLY holidays make my position less thab desirable since i don't live near my family.
What are some different nursing specialties that allow most weekends off and don't require holidays? The only one i can think of is Same Day Surgery but i know very little about it. Any input on that specialty or any other would be appreciated. I'm not looking at something like a school nurse or something like that because i couldn't live off of that kind of salary.
Also, is there any position out there that still works you for three 12 hour shifts without weekends or holidays?
