Thank you so much. I just have a lot of worry and anxiety. I don't know where I want to go and what I want to do. It seems like getting into a hospital is better in the long run to develop fundamental skills.
When you are a school nurse, you have no nurse's station and no colleagues to ask questions, so you have to have confidence in your knowledge and skills, and the ability to be resourceful to find answers to your questions. While it IS possible to be a school nurse, fresh out of nursing school
, I do not recommend it, as you really need to draw from experience to have the triage skills necessary to safely take care of the kids, especially considering you would be working with high medical needs kids.
I would recommend doing a job search
for something where you can work with other nurses, be precepted, have a proper orientation, etc. The 90 minute commute sound terrible. Are there any options closer to home? I would advise you to stay put where you are for now and spend the next several months looking for something closer to home. Hopefully you will find something that fits and then you can give notice after you have been where you are for a year. Good luck!
