I am a lead sister and feel frustrated at the top. I want to move down one step but in a quandary. Can you help?
People often have very good reasons for moving down a step. However it is not always a good idea to undertake such a move and remain where you are unless you consider 'job share'. Also, generally speaking it might be difficult for you to remain working in the same department at a more junior level.
Therefore I suggest the following:
- You could look for the lower grade that you seeking another department if this is possible.
- You might retrain in a different field altogether.
- You might opt for a complete change of scene and move to another hospital, a clinic, a group practice or the private medical sector.
