Would you leave current job for a Mon-Fri less stressful opportunity? - page 3

    I left a job I was miserable in for half the scheduled hours and $4 less an hour. Best move I've ever made! I now LOVE my job and don't mind going to work in the morning. And to make things better...... I've since been promoted to full time and that came with pay raise. I'm now making more than I was at my previous job!
    Are you going to tell us about your job and how we can find the same!

    I was really fortunate in that the full time days RN was a new grad and wanted to work in a hospital. In the meantime they did some rearranging of management, so I was promoted to oversee clinical issues of our longterm residents.
    Sometimes its just taking a leap of faith. If you're miserable where you are - chances are the grass really is greener on the the other side. If you know of a place that is good to work for and is known for excellent care, check to see if they have openings. Even if just to get your foot in the door. So, really, it takes patience, prayer and lots of soul searching.
    Good Luck!

    I am praying and hoping to be in your position. I dread going in to work at my current job. It pays better than a job I will be interviewing for, I'm sure, but the rest of my life is ruined by stress, exhaustion, and working holidays, nights, weekends, and never seeing my friends or family, let alone the sun or doing anything but housework, sleeping, and working. I would definitely take it!
