Hi! I started out right out of nursing school on med surg floor of a hospital. I worked there for 7 months before Coronavirus hit. At that point my manager granted me a leave to figure out what would be best for me and my family. I tried to come back to the job after my leave, but due to low census my manager didn’t have room for me on the schedule so my leave was extended. I couldn’t afford that so I found another job on a progressive care unit at a different hospital and I’ve been there for 8 months now. The thing is, I have been working with mostly the elderly population for my entire nursing career so far. I really always dreamed of finding a job working with babies, children, or pregnant women. I’ve also come to realize lately that I would rather work at a clinic or a doctor’s office - especially a pediatrician or OBGYN. I would love the normal business hours and not working holidays or weekends. I am also not physically strong at all and don’t feel as effective as a hospital nurse because I struggle a ton to life patients and often don’t have much help due to short-staffing. What I’m trying to figure out is when would be the right time to apply for jobs and make this career move. I’m also wondering what the cons would be to working in a clinic, health department, or Dr office setting. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
