    I work in a doctor's office and love it....hospital nursing would never be my thing, so I didn't really pursue it. I have a lot of independence, my contribution to the practice is valued, and I work M-F days, all holidays off, no weekends or nights. Highly recommend it.

    I really found this thread helpful. Thanks to the author and everyone who helped the author of this thread. I've worked with Many hospice nurses who absolutely cherish their job if you ve ever considered hospice.

    As soon as I got my license I started out as a part time agency nurse being sent out to long term care facilities. Ugh. I hated it. It was deppressing, and i really did not like working with old people. I did not last there for a year. Then me and my friend went to a Donna Carillio seminar in which she presented ideas to get out of bedside nursing - like pharmaceuticals, insurance, etc etc . She also gave tips on how to go about interviews.
    True enough, i finally scored an interview for a public health/community health clinic as a RN Nurse manager. I did all her tips even if i felt foolish doing them... But hey i landed the job. Im here now doing a M-f schedule... I will probably seek out a med-surg position soon tho since i wanna go back to school to get my masters/NP.

    I have worked in med-surg, LTC and have been a case manager for hospice for almost 2 yrs. I would love to get away from bedside nursing. I have never been happy doing it and wish someone would tell me how to get out of bedside nursing!! Not my thing!!
