there is is a director of nursing position open at a local critical access hospital. I'm torn on whether to apply... I have some management experience (and house supervisor experience in a slightly larger critical access hospital). Most of my experience is in ER and ICU nursing at a very large metro hospital. I would like to hear about "a day in the life of" a director of nursing, especially at a smaller hospital. I don't know if I would enjoy the switch or not? I currently am PT in the ER and work very late evenings and weekends. I have a toddler and we are considering having another baby soon and that schedule is difficult for us... But it is nice working a 12 hour shift and having other days off. I would just like to hear experiences, things you didnt expect, etc... Thank you!
