It feels like only yesterday I was taking pre-reqs for nursing school and then going crazy trying to get through nursing school and pass state boards. Well, I learned really fast that nursing isn't anything like the media portrays it to be, a highly respected money making field. I learned even faster that floor nursing was not something I would remain in for long. I honestly wanted to give myself 3 years on the floor, but the opportunity came and I ran for my life
I was working on Mother Baby, which many ppl already consider their dream job, but I never really liked OB. I'm currently working for the state and I absolutely LOVE my job, I actually feel like a nurse. I leave work feeling like I'm doing what I was meant to do, and I'm appreciated for it. I get to educate and also get to know my clients and I help them in times when they feel like they have no one else to turn to. There is a lot of autonomy and professionalism in this area that I did not see when I worked on the floor. Now no job is perfect, but the truth is it may be perfect for someone out here. Just thought i'd share a piece of my success story and give someone else in the world of nursing hope, just as many ppl on this site did for me
My motto is, all things r possible through Christ Jesus. Many times I heard, there r no jobs out here for new grads, new grads have to start on M/S, new grads hav to work midnights. I'm thankful that I continue to trust in God & not Man.
God Bless Allnurses
