I JUST got the phone call, and I mean JUST got the call that I got the position in the OB department in my hospital. I have been a registered nurse since 1992, and worked for an OB/GYN for all those years. I transferred to the hospital to try and get in the position for the OB department and voila!! NOW, I am happy AND scared to death!!!
Although I have a wonderful knowledge base of OB, I am still anxious about L&D. ALSO, one downfall is that this position is a full time 12 hour shift NIGHTS position. I am going from weekends DAYS to full time NIGHTS. Am I crazy???
I have two kids, 8 &14, and a husband and I am wondering if being away from them 3 nights a week is going to be rough on "me"! BUT, my husband knows that this is work that I LOVE, something I have wanted my whole life! So, what do you think? Any advice ?????
