    I thought about psych. I need to work on building boundaries and being tougher as psych patients tend to try and manipulate me and play on my bleeding heart. lol

  5. How Important Is Money
    I had the same dilemma when I decided to turn down graduate school when all my coworkers who started with me were going. If you want to do IMC, go do IMC! I promise you, those $3 extra an hour does...

  6. Doctors Orders
    Do you work at an hca facility? At my other hospital the answer was beck no and if any doctor told you to do that and got mad or made a comment, let the supervisor know and they'd take care of it....

  7. Day/Night Rotation?
    I do this now but I'm use to it from my staff job. It's a nice change of pace and I'm glad one particular shift wasn't written into my contract because I was super depressed and stressed out on day...

  8. Exhausted Med-Surg Nurse
    I'm glad you said that because I think that's exactly what I'm looking for, less stress but a reasonable challenge. Nursing isn't a bad experience but I don't want nursing to consume me. I use to...

  9. Self Reflection: What could you do better?
    So, I'm kind of a pushover. I'm always scared that I get in trouble for setting boundaries with my patients and family members so I don't. Honestly, whenever I do, I feel like I get in trouble.

  11. Exhausted Med-Surg Nurse
    I'm thinking maybe if it's specialized then I can focus on one thing as opposed to a a bunch. Maybe if I do something more specific then I'd like it more. At least I can't kick myself for trying....

    I thought about critical care but I feel like if I head in that direction then it's definitely the wrong direction for me. At least in terms of adults and pediatrics. I chose med surg because it was...

    I've thought about hospice. I think I'm going to try for labor and delivery and work on paying off my debt so that I can focus on other aspects of my life.

    Hey Libby, I love the traveling part of it. But I just absolutely hate the med-surg. I'm not sure if I'm ready for home health as I'm not sure I know enough to teach people in their homes. Idk...

    I just went ahead and paid off my smallest debt of $3600. I'm kind of crying on the inside right now. I didn't think parting with some of my savings would be so hard.
