I recently accepted a position to transfer from my med-surg floor to our GI Lab. I was very excited and motivated about my decision but now am having serious 2nd thoughts. Over the last year I became a new nurse as a 2nd career, got married, blended families, and started my career. I am definitely still learning. Here are my personal obstacles: 1. Big time anxiety sufferer, change is very hard for me;2. Indecisive after I felt confident about something, and now having regrets of the unknown; 3. Unsure if it’s the right time to give up the flexibility of working 3 days per week vs 5. This is bringing me a lot of stress as I’m trying to figure out how to balance life and all of the extras outside of 5 days a week. My kids go to school outside of any public transportation, so for the next several years I will have to drive them to and from highschool that is at minimum 25 minutes a day. 4. Anxious about trying to balance my new high schoolers commitments and balance everything else. 5. Leaving a good manager, who I know and is predictable. 6. Fear of failure going into a specialty that is nothing like med-surg. 7. Fear of losing my acute care skills, but exhausted from the long days most days and the demand that comes from a busy, heavy unit. 8. Last but not least, my marriage of less than a year has been rocky. We get along and then argue. We’ve been separated last fall 3 months after our marriage and went to counseling but it didn’t really dissolve much. Things are hot and cold with my husband, I don’t want to bash him...but there are times I don’t feel great about him having to step in and help with my kids and risk him threatening to not help drive them to school if we have an argument. Im at a lost cause and need some serious sound professional advice! Please help!
