I’ve been in quite a funk lately about my job. I hate it more and more each day. On rare occasions I get pulled to med-surg or even the neuro floor, and I can’t get over how calm and relaxed these floors feel compared to my own. No Exedrin Migraine needed those days, but there are no openings on those floors for now. Any other job I look to outside of the hospital is not likely to match my current salary.
I’m soon approaching my two-year anniversary to nursing. I’m trying to decide what to do next. My original plan was to stick it out. The nurses on my floor say “if you can work here you can work anywhere.” I was going to stay in telemetry and go back to school part-time to be a nurse practitioner. I’m just not even sure about that anymore.
These feelings have gotten exponentially worse the last couple of months, so at first I thought that I was being affected by the seasonal changes. I hate the dark. I hate the cold.
Deep down I know that, while the feelings may have worsened due to the season, those feelings have been there for a least a year now. So, what to do? What to do?
