The job I lost
I was working on a 25 bed acute care unit. My patient load was very demanding and I would get between 3 to 4 admissions per week, which I handled myself. My floating RN supervisor wouldn't help at all because she was too busy socializing. I decided to quit my job because not only did I have to complete my own work assignments, my supervisor would leave more work for me to do that wasn't my job to complete. I hate the fact that I quit in that manner.
What it's like being unemployed
I hate being unemployed. It's the worse feeling ever. I find myself sleeping more and being bored, very bored. My bills are piling up, and my girlfriend is getting mad. Lucky she still works, but her check is not cutting it. I hate to have to put all this pressure on her and this has us both stressed out. Since I'm home a lot now, I have been forced to wash dishes and cook, and I'm sick of doing it. I try to help with keeping the house clean, but that's not my cup of tea lol. I started to look for other jobs as soon as I quit, but it is so hard to get one. Who would have thought that? All day I sit behind this computer filling out applications and sending out resumes. So far, 2 interviews.
- I suggest if you are really in need of a job, start with agency. An agency is a good start to get your foot in the door. I have an agency lined up now, and I'm just waiting on my physical and 2 step ppd. One piece of advice my girl gave me -- keep your head up and think positive.
