    I'm 23. I will "celebrate" my 5 year anniversary with my hospital in December...
    Worked on CICU for 3 1/2 years as a tech, then student...did 16 week internship between ER and CVRR, worked 6 months in the ER, now work in After Hours Occ Health (also in the ER, and still take care of ER pts as well as Occ Health) and have done that since ~ April. Content for now...but my wandering foot gets to itching periodically...
    Worked at a Level I for a 12 week ICU internship during school, too...wouldn't mind going back there someday...

    After one year on the job I am beginning to wonder why I am still here? Geesh, I have never seen so much back biting and under-handed back stabbing. There are nurses on this floor who spend time just looking for something to write up a co worker on. I have read many times on this board, "nurses eat their young", but here they aren't proud who they eat up and spit out!

    I've been at my current job less than a year, but in the same type of work for over 20 yrs. Does that count?
    I plan on staying where I am till I get my RN, then moving on to something else......
