There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

Some of the areas that I have explored & had relatively good results in are:

research-Often clinical research nurses have reduced number of pt as they are providing total care and are responsible for their part of the research protocol.

Psych-if that is your thing.-I don't know a med-surg nurse that has not had a group of patients with psychiatric comorbidities, was addressing pt and or family coping with a newly diagnosed or chronic illness.

Wellness-More and more primary care providers are using nurses to educate and track high risk clients with diabetes and or heart disease, etc. These nurses check in with the pt at their office visists and via phone to check for medication compliance, level of motivation to change life style habits, & provide education to pt and care givers related to such changes, eg diet, exercise, attending follow-up & specialist appointments.

Blessings,
Amanda, RN

Hi all my Nurse friends. Due to wear and tear on my body I cant do Med Surge Nursing anymore. Looking for a new position. I have been an RN for 10 yrs doing Med Surge. Have my associates degree. Any suggestions of a field I can get into. All the jobs I have applied for ask for experience in that field. (ex applied for Mother/Baby) was denied. I am out on Medical Leave my job is giving 1 month to find a new position. If I dont I am terminated. Ugh. Any suggestions. I live in the South NJ area.
