Remember me, I started school nursing back in September of 2017. I wasn't in love when I first started but I've learned to adjust and the perks/benefits outweighed how I felt, very baby friendly job, esp since my baby is due May 1st. Just counting down the days till I go on maternity leave now. I signed a new contract for the next school year "18-19". I start maternity leave May 1st and then return back to work September 4th. I also asked for a reduction of hours. So after I come back from leave I will be 7-245 vs staying till 345 just to avoid my heavy commute and have more time to pick up baby from sitter and get errands ran. I had to of course take a small reduction of salary but I'm okay with it for now. If It doesn't make a difference I will ask to go back to original hours and salary. So I'm going to stick it out here for one more year. I applied for an FNP program so just waiting to hear if I was accepted.
Only time will tell me where my nursing journey will take me next year.
Just wanted to check back in with you guys/gals. Hope all is well!
