    Finding a job after taking time off

    You will need a refresher. I'd start there.

    New Anxiety and Depression from Work

    Honestly, I do really feel like some people just have a mental health status that is too fragile for the field of nursing. Yes you can work on it, go to therapy, try drugs...but in the end the stress of the field might still be too much. Or you have ...

    How to get into CM?

    Hi all! Wondering....what kind of experience do you need to apply to CM positions? I only worked the floor for about a year before leaving for various other positions, outpatient surgery/clinic, outpatient cardiac clinic, inpatient education.......

    Pay? Same as clinical RN?

    Did you get the CM job?

    Getting Bored

    I'm not sure if I am having a mid life crisis or what. Did you ever get bored in your current job? Bored isn't really the right word because I don't really think you can ever get bored in nursing, but I guess I just feel restless? Like looking ...

    Taking time off to take care of my new baby? Bad for career?

    Better advice then might be, "if you WANT to stay home with your baby....do it". If I could swing it financially, and my heart said do it, AND it was COVID times, no way is my baby going to daycare as a brand new infant. ? What did you decide, ...

    Back pain... the abysmal side effect of nursing

    Google "Mcgill Big 3". In addition to strength training, I also do these exercises a few times per week as recommended by Dr. Stuart Mcgill.

    Back pain... the abysmal side effect of nursing

    MAKE SURE you strength train!! You are 37...it is super important! This is such a forgotten component. Just a couple times a week will do. Especially with your son which is likely where a lot of that back strain is coming from. Proper lift technique,...

    Are some people not meant for acute care?

    I swear working the floor gives you some weird case of PTSD and codependency. LOL. Every time you leave you want to go back. Or think you want to. No matter how miserable you were when you left. It's like having kids, I swear. You have that second an...

    Are some people not meant for acute care?

    It may very well be your bipolar anxiety, and if it is.....it is what it is. Unless you are going to medicate it down (which often sucks) you have to learn to work through it or around it. I would NOT leave PACU but you could do PRN on the floor, how...

    Don't want to save people/rusty skills

    Thank you!
  12. Hi all, Please no hate here because my heart is in the right place. Can a nurse work as a caregiver? Like odd jobs, like care.com? Unsure about the liability here. ? I don't want high acuity. I don't want to work cardiac. I love hel...

    Back pain... the abysmal side effect of nursing

    Only thing is.....how do you raise bed to appropriate height for both people assisting? I'm so short I always get screwed. LOL

    Taking time off to take care of my new baby? Bad for career?

    I took nearly 5 years off. But it could apply even if you just take a year. Doesn't take very long for them to consider you "rusty".

    New nurse, not eating so I can pass 20-30 patients' meds

    Unless you have zero other choice, quit. Your health is more important that anything. No choice? Make peanut butter energy bites, freeze them, take them to work, shove them in your mouth in the bathroom every couple hours, and forge on. Hope yo...
