    Hospital VS Doctors Office

    Yeah, I guess days would be somewhat better, but I'm pretty sure I don't want to work day shifts because they are much more hectic on our unit. I am usually put on call about once or twice a month. But it feels like the unit is either full of patients and under-staffed, or there are 4 patients and we're on call. Plus I live about an hour away (it's the closest hospital to my house), so that puts me leaving home at 5:30, & getting home around 8. What do you find are the pros and cons of a Dr's office job?

    Hospital VS Doctors Office

    I am in the opposite position as you... I've been a RN for 10 months, and I've been working full-time 12-hour night shifts in an ICU. This includes every other weekend and holidays. I started out loving my job, but it's getting old. I feel like I'm the only one at work who doesn't mind being put on-call. I don't have a car or house note to pay, so I'm not dying to make as much money as I can. The pay is nice, but I feel like work is my life. Like I'm missing out on lots of family and friend time. I live with my fiance` and we don't see each other much because of our schedules. I feel like a normal day job and normal sleep schedule like everyone else would make me a lot happier.
