2) I like most of my co-workers, and the ones I don't like, I don't have to work with that much.
3) I like working nights and picking my son up from school every day.
4) The money's not bad (at this point; remember I'm pretty new!)
5) My future career goals (I don't want to have to "start over" somewhere else).
6) It sure beats waiting tables, hostessing, renting cars, admitting patients to ER and doing 10 key all day long (my previous jobs).

Nov 15, '02Occupation: Geriatric nurse Joined: Nov '02; Posts: 14; Likes: 2Left a job 6 mos ago due to difficulty dealing with management styles of a new DON. She didn't like mine, I didn't like hers. Unfortunately I still miss my coworkers. There was alot of comraderie and teamwork. I would've stayed had it not been for the DON. Now I can't find that connection with other jobs. No grass isn't always greener but sometimes you have no choice but to go to the otherside and hope for the best.
