Thank you to all for these suggestions.
School nursing- I would love this, yes it would be the best of both worlds, unfortunately where I live those jobs are few and far between. I live in Indiana and the last time I checked you had to have a BSN (unless there were multiple school nurses in a school system, then the head nurse has to be a BSN). This could be an option for me in the future, my current employer will pay 70% of my continuing education if it is nursing. I spent time in 2 schools for my clinical in nursing school and loved it, I have been told it the pay is lower than the teachers (I know it sounds like I am concerned about $ but I am also trying to be responsible financially) in some school systems.
Home health-I enjoyed some aspects of this during my clinical. These nurses had one on one time with there patients, did lots of teaching and did not seem very stressed. Although some of the homes we went to were in very bad areas and the nurse spent a lot of time driving putting miles, wear and tear on her personal vehicle. I just did not get the feeling that I would like this type of job for very long.
Teaching nursing-I think I would enjoy teaching clinical. Teaching the lecture part of it sounds intimidating. My strong points in school were history and English. The sciences were much more challenging for me. I was able to make A's for my nursing school prerequisites but it was not easy. In nursing school my first year we had a new nursing instructor and she was not very good. It was awful for her, students would ask for scientific rationals or more in depth explanations and she did not know. This was at a community college so 75% of my classmates were my parents age and they were not very nice to her. I know this was our education and we deserved to have an adequate teacher but they were very disrespectful during class. I found this to be true in other classes not just nursing. I know kids can be very mean as well but I was amazed at the lack of respect for the simple fact that they are the student and the other person is your teacher. So the thought of teaching adults much older than me seems terrifying
Peds nursing- My previous job was PACU (left due to long hrs and tired of taking all the on-call) and we took care of a lot on ent patients. I enjoy the older school age kids 8-12 range, but did not like babies/toddlers. The really little ones were always scared and would never stop crying, it was not for me. The older kids would calm down once you got them comfortable and they were fun to work with.
On my unit we do have weekend option positions which pay for 36 hrs and you actually work 12hr shift. I love my weekends (husband is off work on wknds, family time) but this would be ideal if I become a mother or go back to school. I guess I am just feeling depressed with nursing. At the end of the day I am mentally and physically drained. I try to relax at work but the minute I feel like I slow down something will be missed or not get done. I want to do a good job and feel like I have done a good job at the end of the day. I want to go to work happy and have a job where I am helping people and don't feel like a physical work slave.
