Thank you for your transparency. I never intended to be a bedside nurse either. I've had a rough time finding a job period. But through word of mouth and family, I've had a couple of Private Duty assignments, which lead to some Flu clinics. I've developed some confidence. Always thought I'd be a clinic nurse - applied to many with no responses.  I enjoy the senior population. Giving serious thought to Nursing homes now. I still like Surgical service, Endoscopy particularly was my favorite rotation. Unfortunately, I wasn't taught how to draw blood or start an IV. Which has been a huge road block. But I still believe there is something special for me in nursing. 

You’re welcome! 

Perhaps, you could take a IV certification class at the local college?

Keep trying. You’ll find something that works for you.

It's definitely sad how many patients nurses are expected to care for. And it sounds like you've had a very interesting and diverse career - thanks for giving me some insight into possible options to look into! I'm going to try my best to stick it out and give this job a chance. I feel bad that I'm taking so long to get the hang of it, but I know that's probably common with new grads.

Bemoaning this fact (of too many pts) will do no good.

The solution is to educate the public about what is happening in their hospitals and nursing homes, and to unionize.
