I started out in a busy ER almost a year ago as a new grad. I have thrived and have been told by managers and coworkers that I am doing a great job. They have even moved me to the trauma rooms. However, to be honest... I am not happy. My coworkers are amazing and I do like the ER ( fast turnover with patients, exciting)... but I am stressed all the time. Its hard to explain but I just know I can't stay in the ER forever
. I have a 2 year contract with my department and I plan on honoring it.... & I know another year experience will help with future opportunities.
I'm very interested in mother/baby. As a tech in nursing school I would float to this unit and was always happy and excited when I was working there. Do you know of any ER nurses that have made the switch? I would appreciate any input
