Well, I definitely have learned a life lesson. I have been an NICU nurse for almost 4 years,2 of which I spent at my last job.
After giving notice, I left said job in favor of a level 4 NICU for the experience. I thought I would like all the excitement and highest level of neonatal acuity. I however was wrong. Ecmo is not my cup of tea and the company has made 3 drastic declines in benefits in the short time I've been there due to being bought out. I have trouble sleeping at times and dread coming to work which I didn't before
I feel awful that they've trained me for about 3 months. I've stuck with it, trying to get over it...but I simply don't like it.
My old boss has granted me an interview for a contingent job back on my old unit, I know she will offer it to me. I also have an interview for a seperate part time or contingent position in my old hospital system.
I am desperate enough to get back into the old system that I'm willing to live without benefits for awhile. Anyone done this??
I know I could offer to stay contingent at this current job...but I really want out. If my old place offers full or part time soon , I want to be available.
I'm dreading quitting this job, the manager is very nice. Its just not for me.
