Hi Nurse Beth
Looking for a bit of advice.. I've been working as a school nurse for the last 15 years. I like the kids, but things are changing and not for the better. The job is pretty stressful (a lot of severely emotionally disturbed kids and the administration is not very supportive.) Anyway I have a job offer in an adult med clinic working 8:00-4:30 Mon- Fri.The days go an hour later than I work now, but I no longer need the school schedule as my kids are grown and don't have sports,etc any more. The new job is affiliated with a state hospital and so my state retirement will stay the same. I have worked in family practice for many years in the past so I kind of know what to expect. I would have to give up the school breaks but I can't count summer because I"ve been working summers most of the time (either the summer school program or at the doctor's office.)
It's hard to start over but the pay is much better. approximately 30 K / year.
Just wondering what you think
