Weirdo's Latest Activity

  1. Helloooo I'm an RN working in a Level 3 NICU. I have 2.5 years experience at the bedside. The whole time I was in nursing school and working as an aide at the hospital, I was also doing freelance writing for a local newspaper. Now, I moonlight doing some copywriting on the side for a marketing agency, in addition to my full-time job as a bedside RN. It's a long story, but some of the administrators of my local hospital system got wind of my experience in marketing and writing and took great interest in me. They are now interested in putting me in more of a marketing role within the Communications department. I'm flattered and excited—I've always wanted to make my living as a professional writer—but I don't want to take a pay cut or make a rash decision that I may later regret. I work 3 12s (nights) right now. I love my differential and my 4 nights off. I'm nervous about becoming a 9 to 5er and working in an office instead of on the floor. I'm just wondering if anyone's made a similar move or switched roles so drastically. Are you glad you did? Are you making more or less money? Thanks in advance
