Trust your gut! I started my nursing career in a 500 bed teaching hospital. I wasn't happy. Eventually I started with a non-profit Hospice as a case manager. I went to admissions for a bit which ignited my passion for teaching. Eventually I became my organization's nursing educator and employee health RN. I love it! I COULD earn more at a for profit hospital but NO WAY! I start my BS in Public Health next year. Good luck! Remember nothing is permanent...

Hi Guys! 

Oh my word! Looking back on this over a year later is so crazy. Sorry I did not get back to some people, I did not see some of these replies. If anyone is curious, I did take the job and have not regretted it once. My work life balance is so much better and my family/ friends say I am like a new person. I no longer take accutane and my back is feeling so much better. I actually start with the county in the fall as a public health nurse (my dream job!)! Thanks everyone for your kind words and encouragement!
