I have been in charge of a well recognized hospital's ICU , worked Hematology Oncology, Home Health etc...for 20 years. Nursing is my passion and where I feel complete and worthwhile, but the stress level in nursing these days is difficult for someone older and dealing with health issues. I've been working part time in research under the education department and have used all my strong skills from my nursing background with the positions I have had. I have gone to nursing chat with Donna through nurse week but there always seems to be money involved...buy a book for the answers etc....is there somewhere I can look for a nursing job which can be an honest fit with my skills, background and passion. Nursing is hurting and the problem is the profession does little to support retention or outreach to those who have felt such a loss, not being part of their passion and where their gift is an assest. I have continually struggled with family finances because all the jobs I've had outside of nursing doesn't pay anything close to what I should make, nor what my education is worth, and value as a woman nursing advocate and professional. Thank you for whatever guidance you can offer.
