I have been doing administrative/accounting work for last 12 years. I just finished my first semster of nursing school and let me tell you...I have lost all interest and motivation in my current job. Just coming to work can be unbearable as I can rarely concentrate on my work anymore..(hence you find me here on ALLNURSES) :chuckle
I have alot of freedom in my current job and so far they have been flexible and supportive of my educational plans (minus any tuition reimbursement
). So I am very hesitant to make a change (if it ain't broke don't fix it mentality).
But lately I have been considering switching to a healthcare related job...like unit clerk, monitor tech, or nurse tech. The positions would probably come with a pay cut of $2 or $3 an hour...but may be worth it if the hospital I work for offers tuition reimbursement and I can get some satisfaction out of my work.
So I am just wondering if anyone else has found themself in this situation and can share what they decided and how it turned out?

It makes me feel better to know that I am not the only one losing interest in my current job. I will probably have to stay through this coming year...
but then I will be looking for my first LPN position...WOOHOO!
I will be counting down the months...
Best of luck to all of you on your new positions and for those of you that are going to hang in a while yet, keep you chin up and your nose in the books. It won't be long...
