Leave management for bedside contract?


Specializes in ICU. Has 9 years experience.

Contemplating leaving a nursing management position for a contract as bedside at another hospital. Not gonna lie, it's about the money. I make OK pay (high 30s/hr), but I have a family to feed. It seems like I'm missing an opportunity if I'm an experienced nurse in 2021 and I'm burdened with debt bc of bills. I'd be leaving: a good hospital, good health insurance but no pension or retirement, medium pay, and a good position as a manager, but my hourly pay would be tripled for at least four months. Tripled. It's self scheduling and in the same town in Texas. Should I leave a mid-level management position for a way higher paying bedside position?
