    Sick of floor nursing, what now?

    wish I could hear from someone who has been there, made the change, and give me some kind of hope that there are better options out there that are worth making the change. I just can't see myself doing this forever. I did home care on a free-lance basis during the daytime hours IN ADDITION to working nights because I WANTED SOMETHING DIFFERENT!!! And I got it--- less pressure, more independence, more relaxed patients/families---I liked it and did it for about two years. The extra money wasn't bad either. But that was MY CHOICE! YOU DO YOU!---but it takes courage and perseverance to experiment and jump into a Job mix that's not the necessary "tried and true." It's you doing you! Many blessings and much success!

    One CARN---To Go!

    Imagine after having my CARN application for re-certification signed/ approved by my employer for twelve previous years, I'm told, "The population of your unit has changed and your experience is no longer eligible for the CARN AND you are the ONLY one with this certification in the building." Bulls***! I calmly justified that ALL inpatient units have addictions clients, that ALL admitting patients have to be screened for addictions and ALL My graduate school credits are in Addictions Nursing. (Idiot didn't know that I teach a review course in Addictions Nursing). YES, my application for recertification was signed! This CARN was NOT To-Go!

    Calling in for no sleep

    D*** right! If you lack sufficient sleep, patient safety is at risk or is jeopardized! Never mind, your faulty nursing judgment due to impaired cognitive functioning related to your lack of sleep. NEVER risk patient safety due to some " pretentious" or "false" sense of commitment to report to work. If you don't take care of yourself, how can you take care of the patient(s)?
