I graduated in December 2016, passed and got my NCLEX in February and got my dream job in March in cardiology. I loved cardiology in school and thought it would be a great fit. Three weeks into orientation I absolutely hated it, now 6 months later, I still hate it. I went into nursing because I want to be a CRNA. I'm an introvert, I don't like being around people or talking to people all day long, dealing with their problems. That's why I think CRNA is the perfect fit for me.
I don't think it is just this particular floor that I don't like. I do believe this is just the nature of floor nursing, or nursing in general. I absolutely cannot stand the constant business, busting my ass, admissions, discharges, social work, doctors, families, dietary, rapid response, and exhaustion I feel at the end of every shift. I have called into work THREE TIMES IN 6 months, I am just absolutely miserable. I am looking for other jobs but you know everybody wants experience and with only six months I don't have very many options. Why does nursing seem like such a good career choice in school then in reality I regret it everyday.
