Re: Happy News!!!

Judy, Cathy, and all: Thanks so much for all the well wishes. I have
been waiting years for a position like this to open up...out of nearly
1600 RN positions in our hospital, there are only 10 who do this
particular job and most of them have been in their lines for many, many
years...not a lot of turnover.

Judy: After all these years of bedside nursing, even though I am only
43, I have back and shoulder problems that are only getting worse.
Especially these last several years of geriatric nursing...loads of
lifting. Why aren't you still in hospice nursing? That seems an ideal
fit for you...

And Cathy--you are right, admin. is another thankless job...but isn't that the nature of the beast in all of nursing? 

Blessings in Christ's mercy,


Work for the Lord:  the pay isn't much but the retirement is out of this world!

Good for you. I enjoy bedside nursing but feel like I need to make a
change <br>soon. Hospice was a great fit for me and I would have retired
from there, <br>but am back on the surgical floor. Too much lifting and
bending for me now.<br>Judy b<br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From:

day for me. Not only<br>> spiritually...this is of course, one of my
three favorite days in the<br>> year...when the fullness of God's love
is revealed for us all.<br>> But...beyond that: I got a new<br>>
Twenty three years of bedside nursing are almost
over...woohoo!!!!!<br>><br>><br>> My brother's death has served as a
catalyst for me in many ways...it<br>> really brought home to me that
life is too short to

continue doing<br>> something that has never, not once in twenty three
years made me happy.<br>> I knew 3 months before graduating from nursing
school that this was<br>> something I was really going to hate, but
after 5 years and $25,000 I<br>> felt stuck. And really, nursing has
provided me with a good living...it<br>> pays the mortgage and buys the
groceries and supports my family. But my<br>> heart has never really
been in it. Which is a shame, because I am rather<br>> good at it, if I
do say so myself.<br>><br>><br>> But for the past several years I have
felt more and more trapped...and<br>> more and more like my soul was
dying of unhappiness. And so a couple of<br>> weeks ago I decided to
quit whining about how much I hate my job and I<br>> made a decision to
leave it. Either I would find a new job in a<br>> different field or I
was going to quit working entirely, take my<br>> retirement fund and go
back to school. When miracle of miracles, I found<br>> a listing at my

hospital for a nursing job that is all about computers<br>> and involves
no patient care, is Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m., no<br>>
weekends, and no holidays. I am so excited I am almost beside
myself!!!<br>><br>><br>> So the countdown to my last days as a bedside
psychiatric nurse begins:<br>> April 19th will be the last day I ever
have to get spit at,<br>> hit/kicked/hair pulled, or sworn at again; I
will never have to give<br>> another shot to anyone or force anyone to
take medications or eat or<br>> clean up various body fluids again. Yeah
for me!! Happy dances all over<br>> the place!!<br>><br>><br>>
Okay...okay: now that I've got that out of my system I can go back
to<br>> being my usual stoic Midwestern self! Except that I can't seem
to stop<br>> smiling and giggles keep sneaking up on
me!<br>><br>><br>><br>> Blessings in Christ's mercy,<br>><br>>
