Hey everyone!So, I have been creeping on this website for ages but this is my first post. I have been a nurse on a med/surg (complex medicine) unit for about 2 years now and am sick of it. I love my coworkers but HATE night shift. Never in my life have I been a night person and I just can't stand it any more! I have become very antisocial in my normal life and don't want to see or talk to anyone- mind you prior to this I was very social and was always outside being active. I am tired all of the time and can't stop falling asleep places. Seriously, I have fallen asleep at dinner out with people, at events, at meetings during the day-time, at friend's houses, etc. It's gotten to a point where they all just accept my sleepiness and let me sleep where I will. I end up getting A LOT of sleep because of this but feel exhausted and I am only in my mid twenties. I realized this all fairly early on so I applied to be moved to dayshift because night is just not for me. The shift itself is fine but my quality of life outside of work has suffered greatly because of it. But alas, we are almost a year away from the point where I submitted my request and the best answer I get is "we're thinking of you!" which doesn't do jack for my current situation. Which brings us to now. I have no idea what I want to do with myself but I know I need out. I kind of want to do ED or ICU - mostly to put myself in a good situation for my future so I can get the jobs I want, once I learn what it is I want to do, and get experience. But I don't want to put myself in a situation where I hate my life for a longer period of time. How should I go about picking a job and finding out what I want to do? I am scared that if I get ED or ICU I will be in over my head and screw myself because I don't have all the information on the situation. Does anyone work in ED/ICU that could give me a dose of reality on it?I am not at a point where I want to work in an infusion clinic or outside the hospital. I feel like someday I want to work in public health because I LOVE education, being creative, motivating others, and being outdoors. But none of that is happening today. :) Thanks!
