I am thinking of doing this one too, two to three years from now. I just started my career as a critical care nurse a few months back but have been doing MedSurg, Skilled Nursing and Psych in the past 6 years of my nursing life. Since I worked in two different countries outside the US previously, I thought that moving to a different place or to a new organization or even to a new unit would ease me of my everyday void that I feel. Don't get me wrong, I love our profession (helping people) but there will be days that majority of it is stressful and tiring. And like most of the commenters here, I don't see myself working bedside in the next 30 years of my life.
I'm only 26 as well and is already looking around for non bedside work that I can do part time then still be a critical care nurse per diem so that I won't lose my skills as a bedside nurse. Maybe home health, case management or even hospice. Right now, all.I can do is wait and learn as much as I can from where I am right now. Good luck to us.
