I have been a nurse for a just under 2 years. After graduation I started out in the in adult world, only because that was where I could get a job. But my goal had always been pediatrics, NICU to be exact. As soon as my year was up with the adult hospital I was hired at the top children's hospital in my area.
It was a dream come true. However, there weren't any NICU positions available but PICU was hiring. So I said I'll take it! (Well after the interview process and all). But here I am about 6 months into and I just don't love it. I don't really know how to put it into other words...it just doesn't to "fit" me. So now I'm sitting here wondering is it because it's still not my dream job (NICU) or will I ever be happy in a nursing job?
This post is part vent and part curious if anyone else has felt this way? And if so, did you ever find your "dream" job?
