I know exactly how you feel!
I left my job in float pool, to move to the other side of the country to work in ED. Then Covid hit, and it’s been a rough couple of months.
I’ve always been so independent, so I didn’t think anything of being so far away from everyone I knew would be such a problem. Plus I Was already living 2 hours away from my family before moving here. But I just feel isolated and have a bit of FOMO
Also the job is OK, like I don’t hate it, and I’m good at my job. But I already know in the short time I’ve been here, ED is not my specialty. it’s not my passion. I saw a job today, much closer to home, in a area of nursing I’ve always been passionate about but I’ve only just started to get myself settled here, which has been costly, and moving after only a few months will look bad on my CV. I can’t stop thinking about this job though.
March next year my student loan will be paid off, I’m aggressively saving every cent this year, will have a year of ED experience (plus 2.5 of float pool) and will have the freedom to do anything I want! That’s what’s getting me through.
For you Just keep focusing on getting that magical 1 years experience and then you will be free! Another 5 months and you can start applying to new jobs, and hopefully Covid will be over or slowed right down, to make it much easier.
