I have posted on here before about my struggles with med-surg nursing. Everyone has been very supportive, thank you all!So now I am almost to my 6 months. I am able to apply for new jobs (to transfer within the system) on that exact day. It happens to be Easter Sunday, interesting how it is a time of new hope!I know that I have to transfer. Med-surg really isn't for me. To make matters worse, they just changed the pt population we serve, without any real education for the RNs. We get little info sessions a few times a month while we have already started care of these pts. It makes me nervous. Also, they ask me to stay after my 12hr night shift for these sessions, and I am exhausted already. I have no idea how much I am retaining.I am struggling with my next move. I don't know what type of nursing to try next, and I am terrified of choosing the wrong specialty. My interests have always been towards women's health (I always wanted to be a L&D RN) but I like the OR as well. I am told that the L&D units in my system are for high risk cases (not exactly what I had in mind) and the consensus from the OR RN advice seem to be that you need a certain personality to "make it" there. I don't know if I will fit there or not. I have the option of going back to Psych, and while I don't mind going back, I feel like I want to give my other interests a shot. So here's where I really need the advice, especially from managers. I am afraid that if this next job doesn't work out (i.e. I don't have the "right" personality for the OR, or L&D is more intense than enjoyable) it will look bad on my resume. You know, 1+ year, 6 mos, then ?I stayed at my first RN job for a year and a couple of months, which I like well enough. I had wanted to stay at this job for a year, but I realized that with the above issues I can't do that. I don't expect a job to be perfect, Psych had its drawbacks too. But I only left Psych so that I could have "medical experience." I'm leaving this current job because it's not a good fit. But I don't want managers to look at my resume and toss it. I don't want to jump around forever. I want to get into a nursing specialty that I am passionate about and stay! Managers, would this scare you off? Staff RNs, how long did it take you to find your niche? Did anyone else try a couple things, or did you stay for years despite knowing it wasn't for you?Thanks in advance!
