I'm a new grad (I graduated last May) and I worked on a hospital floor for a mere three months before leaving because I was so overwhelmed with that type of environment that I just couldn't do it. Plus my health was majorly deteriorating, so while I'm heartbroken I had to leave at least I'm eating and sleeping again. c:
But after working at the hospital, I don't think it's just acute care I don't dig, but bedside nursing in general I don't really like. I'd say I'm a rather boring personality type who likes something a little more "relaxed," if possible--in part because I tend to be a very anxious person. I also feel like I need something a little slower paced, as I'm generally not a confident person and need more assistance to kind of coax me into my career. (I felt like at the hospital, it was being thrown on the floor and I was trying to keep up with everything and it was just overload.) And to be sickly honest, I even enjoyed doing research papers and paperwork in general, so some type of boring job involving paperwork or phone calls would be something I'd apply for.
What kind of non-traditional jobs are there out in the world that I've probably overlooked/never heard of that I could look into? I've contemplated doctor's offices, but I realize that RNs aren't hired as often. Where do I even start looking for these types of jobs? (e.g., if I wanted to work for an insurance company for filing claims, how the heck do I even find one to apply to? Where do I find jobs not often heard of that would fit my style?)
