    Feeling Bored

    I have been a nurse for almost two years now. I spent the first year as a new grad on a medsurg/tele/oncology unit. That unit was wild. I learned something new almost every shift and almost every patient was a difficult case. My mind was always working. However, that job was physically, emotionally, and psychologically exhausting. I'd go home and cry for hours and sleep for 15 hours after a shift. I would have horrible anxiety before work and have panic attacks. At my one year, I quit after I accepted a pediatric nursing job. I THOUGHT it was my dream job. I used to be a preschool teacher and I absolutely love kids. However, it's been almost a year and I'm SO bored as a pediatric nurse. I see the same thing every shift and 9 times out of 10 I have nothing to do on shifts for a few hours. Now, this doesn't sound bad and I love my job so, so, so much. But, I truly thrive when my mind is working and I am in busy situations. So, because I have felt bored, I have been picking up shifts on the progressive care units. However, I have this feeling like I need to keep doing more as a nurse. I want to go back to school. I want to work in the ER. I just keep wanting more. Does anyone else feel like they are missing something out of nursing? Should I just sit still for a little and enjoy the calm? I feel stuck! help!

    Adult Oncology to Pediatrics

    Hi! I recently accepted a position in acute med/surg in Pediatrics and I'm so excited but super nervous. I've worked in acute oncology/medsurg/telemetry for a year now. My orientation for my new position is 6 weeks. Does anyone have any tips and recommendations for me? Any good reading?
  3. Hi! I am currently working full time as an oncology/medsurg/tele RN in Arizona and I am wondering where I can take classes to administer botox and juvaderm.

    New Nurse, feeling depressed

    Update: I have reached out to a counselor for help. It's sad I feel this way when I felt nursing was my calling. I will keep everyone updated.

    New Nurse, feeling depressed

    I have been working as a nurse since July of this year. I work on an oncology floor on the night shift. Lately, I have been falling into depression. I sleep all the time, I never want to do anything, and I haven't been putting any effort into anything. I cry on the way to work and I dread going into work even on my days off. I do admit that my heart is set on working in pediatrics and I just took this job because it was the only job that would hire me as a new grad at the time. I am just wondering if what I am feeling is normal for a new grad working nightshift. I have been there for 5 months now. I never know what I am doing and I feel like I am a burden for asking questions all the time. Does anyone have any advice for me?
