Most of it has been on the heme-onc BMT floor. I love working with children, but when I get my BSN next month I am on to something else. Alot of the reason I am leaving are people's attitudes. I plan on writing something to my fellow nurses on how attitudes can make or break someone. No one needs to come to work everyday and hear negative attitudes. If you are unhappy, you get out. That is what I am doing. I feel like I can not go in one more day. I need a new stress and a new set of people. I would love to do school nursing where there is more autonomy. Good luck. I do agree with the above that you may want to stick close to home for family life tho.

You have put things so perfectly that it would be hard not to understand where you are coming from. I too have felt what you have and wanted to bolt at times. It is a very rewarding job as well as it can be chaotic all on the same shift.
I hope you find some peace in your travels and your heart heals. We need more caring nurses to stand with us so that the patients know that they have the best caring for them!! Good luck to you, and happy trails to you!!Last edit by Shed13911 on Mar 9, '04 : Reason: spelling error
