Hi everyone hope all is well your way. Let me start by saying I have been a stay at home mom almost three years. I got my first RN job Sept 2012 just prn at a nursing home ( its hard for me to get a job since I graduated in 2010) anyways, I hardly work. I love being at home with my daughter! shes my world my happiness my life! well my family budget got to the point I have to get a job. Im still prn at nursing home but they never call me just like once a month or so and that's obviously not enough. My dream job is OB ( my own labor experience gave me that passion. the way the nurses took care of me and my daughter just inspired me and I have that deep passion for it in my heart, but I cant get it without experience.) so, I was offered a ER position and heart breaker here its FULL TIME. I would prefer part time taking baby steps being away from my princess. but its fulltime nights so 3 a week. its self schedule im going to try my hardest to do just weekends I think that will bring me some comfort. and that works best for my family. but bottom line I have been so sad lately..i dont know how im going to leave or do this. this is obviously my first fulltime job so im scared but I do need the experience if im going to get my PRN dream job. lol and I know with this job market I should be greatful ive been given this opportunity for this job. im trying to be positive its only 3 nights ill still make time to see her have dinner before work etc... im trying to think this is temporary until I can transfer into my dream job here in my town ( same company). where I will work is 30 min away not to bad the er manager is actually married to the manager in ob here in my town.
the er manager knows ob is my dream job so I think he was trying to help me get my foot in the door. I dont know. I need to be thankful but I just keep crying around because this is hard on me going from 3 yrs. stay at home mom to full time 12's nights. any advice opinions words of encouragement please it would be much appreciated and thank you!
