Quitting a soul-sucking job was such a relief for me when I did it I wondered why I had agonized to and fro in my mind in the months before I made that final decision. All the best in your new endeavor! :up:

Congrats Commuter! Let us know how the new gig goes. My former neighbor was also a nurse working in case management for an insurance company, and I was always curious about just what her job entailed. She definitely worked mostly from home, and seemed to spend a lot of time on the phone (thin ceilings), but I never knew the day-to-day details of what she had to do.

I will bet in a few months you will wonder how come you held on so long to the other.

There's always options.

Enjoy the change!

Congratulations to you! Sometimes we just have to make that leap of faith decision. I made mine back in May. I left a job that was too far from my home. I had been working for that hospital system for 8 years but it was time for me to go. Fast forward to October. I got the job I had been waiting for (for years) at a very prestigious hospital system in my area and it pays $20 more an hour than my last gig! I absolutely love my new role and I wouldn't have been where I am now without leaping out on faith.

I was recently fired from a position I hated. I was the only nurse for 45 to 50 residents in a nursing home. At first I was so upset and mad. I am 62 years old and I've been a nurse for 27 years. I took a pay cut and now do home health for fragile children. Mostly I'm just there playing on my ipad. The two I take care of are pretty stabLe.

You will hopefully enjoy your new job. No more bosses getting in the way. Good luck
