OK, I know this may seem like a stretch, but it may not be...
I've worked OB for the past 10 years and have enjoyed it, BUT I am starting to feel like I want to do something different. I am tiring of all the teenage, single moms on welfare (which seems to make up a large part of our census) who feel like they are entitled to EVERYTHING :angryfire for free, and who choose to not get a job but instead just keep reproducing like there's no tomorrow with as many different men as possible. Lots don't even keep custody of their babies because they're far too busy partying, etc. It gets sooo old
! There definitely are very positive aspects of working OB, too.
I'm just starting to question whether I may be ready for a change, especially in a couple of years when my youngest will be in school full time. I currently work every weekend, which is great for now, but I'm thinking it would be nice to have some weekends off when the kids are all in school!
In the meantime, I will just work my weekends for the next couple of years. I have an Associate's degree and have also considered getting some other education (possibly online?) while I'm still just working weekends. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best type of training for hospice?
I know hospice and OB seem like opposite ends of the spectrum, but I do have experience with stillbirths and fetal demise situations. Also, we do a TON of teaching in OB, which I imagine is true of hospice, also. There are also many family dynamics to deal with in OB, as is true with hospice. I'm not sure hospice would be for me, but especially after reading some of these boards, I think it could be... (BTW, I've also worked 3 yrs of Med Surg and 1 yr of Home Health as an aide, while going to nursing school)
What are your thoughts?
