HI everyone!!! tommorrow i have to go to work but i cant seem to go to bed b/c of my anxiety towards my current job.
I have been wrking for 1 1/2 yr now as an er nurse, night shift, 7 days per paycheck and I absolutely hate it!! at first i thought i was just overwhelmed, but till this day i still don't like what i do for a living. i cry everyday, cant sleep, have anxieties, and sometimes dream about my job. i can't enjoy my 2 yr old babygirl b/c i'm always worried , tired, grumpy. my job is affecting my relationships outside wrk. After 1 1/2 yrs of sucking it up and telling myelf it will get better, i have finally decided that bedside nursing isnt for me.
I have been trying to get a job at a clinic, utilization review nurse, telephonic triage / advisement nurse, even med surg rn position just to see if I try a a different floor things might be different. But I never get a call back after applying for these positions or I'll get an email stating I dont have the qualifications. I'm frustrated, I don't know where to take my nursing career. i thought with my experience it'll be easier for me to transition to a different area in nursing or at least get an interview. my other fellow new grads that were in the same cohort as I have all been been getting many different opportunities after their first nursing gig.
any feedbacks or support would greatly be appreciated
