I feel your frustration. I graduated in 2014 from the LPN program. Took the NCLEX a few months later and didn't pass, in the mean time I worked in ED as a CNA, studied my butt off then took it again last year in March and finally passed. I was so excited. I wished I was able to stay in the ED but they didn't hire LPN. So I took my first nursing job at an OB/GYN office in June of last yr. with so much excitement enthusiasm and what a huge difference. I went from being loved by my peers in the ED to being disliked by a lot of the medical assistants because they felt I was there to take their job. smh. I was pretty much thrown in and no other nurse to look to besides my boss who I like but was always busy. Things have gotten better but it's not what I expected. I went from doing triage as a brand new nurse with another MA to having my own schedule where All I do is all the inj. and pregnancy test(plus everything with it), which are all scheduled with me. I feel like I'm losing my clinical skills; skills that I worked so hard for in the nursing program. I'm just not happy. I miss my ED family so much. Times where I wished that I stayed there till I was able to obtain my RN. Times where I thought of going to a nursing home but I don't want to leave the hospital....the dr. office is part of the hosp. Heck, I would love to do a Foley. LOL. I have learned some things from there but you can only go so far. Plus I've had to deal with some bias stuff. There is a woman who has no patience for pt. where english is their second language. I've had pt. complained about her, and have gone to my boss about it but I don't think anything got done because I still see her raising her voice at them and being rude. There was one time where she came to me asking if I can talk to a spanish speaking pt. who is out in the waiting room and since spanish is my second language I said sure, what is her name? Her response, "You can ask her when you see her"....Ok, so because I'm hispanic I'm suppose to know what another hispanic person looks like? Let me just get my radar out and find her. I was so angry. I mean c'mon!! I've been currently looking for positions in the hospital but nothing yet. But now I'm nervous because of the lack of skills I have. But I'm miserable to. Idk. I am going to school trying to get these prereqs out the way so I can get in the RN program. Should I stay and suck it up till I Obtain my RN or get in the hospital setting, I just feel a little lost. I even thought of staying there and getting a per diem position at a nursing home till I got in the RN program. I wish I could do per diem at the hospital but they consider it overtime since the office is a part of them. I feel so sad and alone at times.
