Quote from Marisette
I'm unhappy with my present employment situation...overwhelmed by my employers unrealistic expectations, unfair favoritism for some nurses, excessive travel and so on... I've been a nurse for a long time, and I'm not particulary excited about new challenges. I'm tired, partly because I am so beaten up by my present employer.
I fear the unknown. Will I be able to perform the duties my new job requires?
I have a good work ethic so I fully intend to. I wonder what will happen to me in this job market if my perspective job does not work out. I need to keep a full time job.
What would you do in a similar situation? Should I take a risk? I'm going into case management.
You are burned out & need a change, right?
All your concerns about the new job are perfectly normal, especially after being being in one place for most of your professional life. You have developed a wealth of skills and experience, and they aren't planning to hire you if they think you will fail.
If you can, take a 2 week vacation so you start the new job detoxed from the old job and be ready to rise to the challenge.
