Hello i've been a nurse for almost 3 1/2 months on a pediatirc unit that has mix of teens health issues, renal/dialysis, some behavioral issues and asthma. I like my pt population but working on this floor has taken a toll on my sanity and makes me question if i should choose a different type of nursing. I just finished orientation and i feel like it wasn't enough and no one talked to me about extending it or if i ws ready to come off. I felt like it didn't prepare me enough. I'm just sick of getting rolled eyes when i need help, dealing with rude nurisng assistants that act like you asked them for the first born child, when u ask them for assistance, and the crazy work schedule. Even though i am a new nurse i was thinking of taking classes to get my certificate in school nursing. I am planning to stick with my job for another year to gain more confidence in my skillsand experience, but have my certificate on the back burner. I'm not saying school nursing is easy by any means but i'll never know if its a better career area for me if i don't try. Does anyone think this is a bad idea, have opinions, or think a year and a 1/2 of nursing isn't enough to be a school nurse?
