    I'm back!

    Update. LOL. Left HH again back in April and never going back... Not to a permanent position anyway. I'm now a traveler and I will never rule out the possibility of doing a HH contract, but it would only be temporary of course, and the pay woul...
  2. So I just started traveling after 19 years of being an RN. Currently doing a contract in a fairly small but very busy regional hospital. I'm not here to make friends... But at the same time... I tend to be really quiet, especially around larg...

    Any other INFJ Nurses?

    *Hand up* yep, me too! I've been working a lot lately and am definitely feeling the compassion fatigue setting in. I feel a strong need to take off to Margaritaville.

    phenobarbital for ETOH withdrawal

    phenobarbital for ETOH withdrawal

    Sick and whiny (long rant, but I'll summarize)

    Myself, I call in if my head feels like it weighs 2 tons, if I have a fever, if I just overall FEEL horrible and weak, or if I can't leave the toilet for five minutes without something wanting to come spilling out of me. Either end. I have gone in ...

    How long did it take you to get used to a new job?

    Yeah, that. I've been at my current job for almost three years now, and am truly truly starting to feel like it's time to move on to something different, at least for a while. My goodness, I know I'll miss this place though. So, I feel for ya, in ...

    Is this hurting my resume?

    The possible problem is... if you start sending your resume to places NOW that you might like to work in in the future... they are going to get it in their heads right NOW, that you are a possible job hopper. What you might do is include a cover let...

    Do as I say, and not as I do.

    He's not even a real art therapist? Bogus, man! I'm sorry that you are having to deal with little man overstepping his power. Where does his "power" come from anyway?

    OMG ?

    I still don't know WHAT exploded! Was it a giant pulsating cyst? I've seen some crazy videos on Facebook.

    Do as I say, and not as I do.

    Stealing the thread for a minute. I envy Clark. I wish I could be an art therapist. I considered going to school for it once upon a time. Until I realized what a gigantic pay cut I would take, going from RN to art therapist!!!
