I finally got an interview for a nursing job. I have been working as a nurse manager for about 15 months in a job that I dislike. I have been applying for clinical nurse jobs for the past 6 months with not even a phone call. Finally I get a call for an ER nurse position close to home. I am excited but also apprehensive. This would be a new specialty area different than my 11 years in OR nursing so I am excited about learning something new. The shifts would be 12 hr shifts as opposed to my 10-11 hr work days which would be nice. It would be nice to have more days off since I currently work 5 days a week. I know it will be less money so I am holding my breath to see how bad of a hit I will take. We'll have to wait and see.
