Quote from D&Ggirl
I work in L&D right now, and I do have very supportive people that I work with, but I dont want to bring it up with them since I haven't had any luck with the job search. I have searched alot of stuff on search engines but I cant find any of the things you listed Grumpy, but I'm in Wichita, KS and none of those are listed, do you have any other tips?
First of all I'd like to say L and D is a tough place to start out, it's basically a pregnant ED. I worked a 9 month stint and already had several yrs under my belt, and still wasn't comfortable/confident when I left, I'm not an adrenaline junkie though, It takes at least a year anyplace/any dept to feel somewhat ok, probably 2-3 to feel you know what your doing. My question , did you like clinicals and pt care then, or hated it from the onset.?? If you disliked pt care what were your goals upon graduation?
As far as the searching, if you go to htpp://www.careerbuilder.com
, then you can type in nurse in search, and then subcategories like administration, management, research, quality assurance, insurance co's etc, that will:typing get you out of the mainstream jobs that normally pop up. Good Luck
