I am a new nurse. Been working a a hospital as an RN for 3 months now. My significant other works 5p-5a sunday thru thursday. I have to work every other friday and saturday 7p-7a. So that means we only get to spend time together every other weekend. It's only been three months, but i am sick of it. I miss him. Another thing.... like everyone else, I LOVE the holidays. I started my Xmas shopping 2 weeks ago. Today I am getting somewhat depressed because I know I will be working 7p-7a on both xmas eve and xmas day.
I guess I am just curious... What types of nursing jobs (other than doctor offices) are out there where I would work striaght weekdays, weekends off, and holidays off. I am new to nursing, so i really don't know. I don't think I am going to run out and apply to these jobs, but it would just be nice to know I DO have the option ... especially when I am feeling depressed about not seeing my honey, or being with family on holidays.
Thanks in advance!
