So, you hate your job!? Now what?!

Hi guys! Whatever you do, don’t feel bad about this one! We have ALL been there, whether we have the guts to admit it or not! Lord knows I have! I have had nursing jobs I just didn’t like. Sometimes, I literally dreaded going to work. Now, I have 2 nursing jobs and 1 nursing hobby that I absolutely LOVE!! I get excited every night just thinking about the next day! My hope is that everyone will at least once during their working years, find and work their dream job! Not just nurses, but everyone. The saying really is true…find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life!

    So this post came right on time! I’ve been seriously saying this for a while now. I started on the med cart then I began to hate it. Not the job itself but the lack of teamwork, appreciation and administrative issues. So I put my two weeks notice in and was offered another position but within administration as the nurse over Social Services.I was excited and happy about the new journey but now after 3 months in, I feel like my new job is taking away from my nursing. I really want to be a nurse instructor I’ve been told by so many that I should go back to school to become a teacher and as good as it sounds it will definitely be a task. I feel better knowing that I’m not obligated to any job with the diversity of nursing. I just felt bad that after given a new opportunity I’m not that happy! Love you,

      Deniece, I am so glad this helped you! Congrats on the new position! I think you would make an AMAZING instructor!! Students would truly benefit from your knowledge. If I can help you along the way, let me know! Love you too!!

    Hi Ashley. I just happened upon your blog from someone’s Pinterest post. What a refreshing take on life! Nursing is my second career, and I got into it thinking I was going to love it. But I became jaded after about a year or two. I switched departments, which helped for a while. However, now I feel that itch that there’s something else out there for me. I feel I’m meant to do so much more in nursing because, right now, I don’t feel like I’m making an impact. Thank you for the added inspiration that I needed.

      Hi Kira, thank you so much for leaving a comment! I appreciate that so much. I am so glad that you found inspiration in my message. I am rooting for you and I hope that you find the path in nursing that makes you feel like you are making a difference and brings you joy! I would love to celebrate with you when that happens, so please keep me informed! Many blessings to you!
