Hi Fellow Nurses out there in cyberspace- Need your help! Please put your minds together & brainstorm some great employment opportunities that are out there for me that maybe I just don't know about.
Nursing was never a good healthy fit for me as a career. Had absolutely no
idea what I was actually getting into when I got my nursing degree & it was my own fault & my own stupid impulsive decision. Did all kinds of patient-care nursing roles: hospital, nursing homes, assisted living, home health, pediatrics, clinics, doctors offices, methadone clinic. None of the patient care roles were a good fit for me because I'm not wired to be a personal care giver type person. I enjoy helping people but in an indirect way not in their personal space. For example, I loved my administrative positions as a Research Nurse coaching patients through the steps of a clinical trial but research is an unstable field due to grant funding. There has got to be a good fit out there for me some where using my transferable skills in some nontraditional administrative role under the medical umbrella thats not too stressful.
Where are the happy employees who have a Nursing back ground working? What types of employment roles are they doing? I want to find another nich out there which is similiar to my last research coordinator position or something totally out of the box. I am wide open to any career options out there which would appreciate my medical back ground & would really enjoy having me on board. Are there any such companies out there where employees truly enjoy coming into work every day? I just want to work for a good company to get my benefits & where there is a healthy corporate culture & the company needs my skills.
How can I make LEMONADE out of my career history? Also, looking for stable work not prn or contract work where I don't get any benefits. Would love to get your great ideas. -Thank you- Lisa
