Does anyone have any thoughts on nursing positions with more autonomy? I've been in the hospital system setting (including clinic) for 10 years and am starting to feel annoyed at having to have someone approve my every little move! My son is getting older and so am I! I am not sure I want to spend the next 10 years of my nursing career like this. I actually really like my work environment, however, I don't like having to grovel for permission to attend a school function ir go to an appointment!!Any thoughts? Insight? Advice?
