I have 3 years Med/Surg, 3 years ICU, and now I'm in PACU and I love it! I have just been promoted as Charge Nurse after being there for 8 months and I still love it. Being in charge entails responsibilities and let's be honest, some politics too.Anyhow, travel nursing came to mind recently. After doing the math, I'd be making $10K more if I stay where I work now and still able to keep all my benefits intact. I have a list of PROs and CONs in mind.TRAVEL NURSEPROs- Travel to different parts of the country per assignment.- Meet new people. No attachment.- Make non taxed incomeCONs- Learn new hospital policies and computer system.- Pay rental while maintaining my mortgage. I don't wanna give up my house since it will be my home base when waiting for the next assignment.- Possibility of getting floated to other units. I don't like being floated.STAFF NURSEPROs- I'm comfortable with the system - I'm familiar with the policies and procedures of the hospital- My house is only 5 miles away from work. It works perfectly when I'm on call.- Opportunity to pick up extra shifts to other units that I like. I have a choice.CONs- I have to deal with newly promoted managers from other units who do not have a clue of what they're doing. Although this is unavoidable in all hospitals. There will always be that one person who will f*ck it up for you. I guess after writing this down, I'm no longer torn on my decision. I'm leaning towards staying at my current hospital. I'll just suck it up and toughen it out. I'm giving myself another 4 years in this current hospital to lower my home loan then I can go wherever I want.Feel free to comment. Thank you!
