After two years of mucking about in the nursing world. I finally found a job that I am very happy at and is so satisfying. I am happy to get up and go to this job every day. I really love my job. I am seriously so happy. I have been at this job for only ten weeks now, but have not had a single day when I felt like quitting. I like the job, I like the patients, I like my coworkers. My other jobs I would feel like quitting even after less then a week on the job! What does this mean?!! Does this mean that I have finally found my niche? Happy and job are two things that usually have not gone together for me. Has anyone else ever experienced this?
Wow! This is great news. Whre do you work, and do they have other openings? LOL. Just kidding. I am so glad you found your niche, or at least a happy place in the nursing world. I just came home from yet another miserable day at work, wondering why I chose to become a nurse. I had a patient's family member say some not so nice things to me today, and I was already feeling very low from the present work situation. I am wondering if I will ever find some place where I do not feel stressed out of my gourd, miserable, and unhappy. If I didn't have to support the family, I would surely quit my job (well, being an adult with responsibilities, I have to grin & bear it).
I like to think there is some place out in nursing that is a perfect fit for me, too. Seeing your good news really lifts my spirits! I'm so happy you found a great job & wonderful work environment! It gives me hope to keep looking for a better job that is a better match, and that I may find something similar, too. Enjoy the new job! By the way, do you have any words of wisdom as to how you found the job that suits you best, or any encouraging advice for those of us still looking? Congratulations! :-) Thanks for sharing your happy news.
