I've posted here before and have gotten such positive feedback, and now I need some more help! I graduated nursing school last December (wow, has it been that long!?!) and was working at a New Orleans hospital when Katrina hit. I lost everything except the scrubs
on my back, and have now relocated. Shortly after leaving New Orleans, I found out I was pregnant. When it rains, it storms!!! So, I was unemployed, homeless, and pregant. Luckily, my hospital got its act together and was I was able to collect some severance pay to keep myself and husband on our feet. Well, we found a place to live, and we will be moving soon, and so far my pregnancy is going well. Once we are in our new house (within a month) I really need to get a job to save up some money for after the baby is born. I have about 6 months experience working nights on an oncology/med surg floor, and also some priceless experience as a nurse working for 5 days during and after the storm in a hospital without basic medical supplies and equipment. The problem is that although I have taken time off to mentally recover from what went on, I really am not ready to go back to "floor nursing" especially while I am pregnant. Further more, I don't want to work until I'm 9 months pregant and am so fat i can't walk
(i'm about 13 weeks) So, is it unrealistic to find a temporary nursing job that is easy on a pregnant nurse??? I dont' mind working full time, I just want to work for about 5 months or so and then be home with my first baby. I was thinking doctor's offices might be the way to go, or maybe dialysis, but I have no experience with either! If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much!
