Allnurses helped me get my act together (almost quit nursing) - page 2

Hey everyone. It's been a long time since I've posted anything. Not sure if you recall but I had a really rough time during my first two years of nursing (see previous posts) Not only that, but I... Read More

    I am touched by this post. Yes, we all make mistakes but it takes a mature, well-rounded professional to admit it and take the necessary steps to amend it.

    You have inspired me to be more humble in my undertakings and my conversations. I wish there were more persons like Wuzzie who will call a spade a spade and let us know when we have crossed the line.

    Thank you LPNewbie for this post

    Absolutely. Writing this post was very therapeutic especially since I just got my license renewed for the first time. Everyday is a lesson and I will continue to learn and get better. Months ago, I could never imagine writing this, especially to Wuzzie. I think unfortunately us nurses think we're machines but we are not. It's a tough lesson but I'm glad I learned my lesson early in my career!

    Yep okay.

    To the OP now want to quit your fourth new job in less than two years.... more introspection is needed. All jobs you quit quickly and then can't understand why employers are reluctant to hire you. Maybe nursing is not for you and it's time to accept that and move on.

    Technically, fifth job. There was a 2-day stint in home health. Same drama, different job. She was fired after 2 years at her first job, then quit after 3 months, fired after 3 months, quit after a couple days and it looks like this one lasted under 4 months.

    Please get help so you can figure out why you keep making the same poor choices. You mention a lot of external reasons for your decisions (childish coworker, bad management), but the truth is that every job has its negatives. Granted, you could have picked five really awful jobs; if so, you need to figure why you are doing that too. However, five in a row probably points to you as the common denominator. I wish you well.
