‘I’m unhappy’


I agree with J Johnson, that there are so many specialties in nursing to explore. I myself was disenchanted with the medical floors, as I believed the nurse ran around like a crazy person doing a version of assembly line care. When I became a senior, I took a part time weekend job in a step-down ICU. It developed into a full time job as an RN, but then I became tired and disenchanted there and took a position as a child psychiatric nurse. There I found my passion, and ended up getting my Master's in Psychiatric Nursing. I have worked as a mental health nurse, a psychiatric nurse manager in units for children and adolescents, then applied this experience to home health, and later, hospice nursing. Currently I am happily employed as a school nurse. Nursing has been an amazingly broad education for me, and opened many doors that I hadn't expected.
