A agree with JerseyGirl that you have to love what you are doing in nursing. I have been an RN for 30 years (at the same hospital) and have been fortunate enough to always have jobs I enjoyed. I worked float pool, ER, house-wide supervision and staff education, academic education and currently, simulation education. Each job had its challenges and rewards but I have always enjoyed what I did- otherwise I wouldn't have stayed in it (certainly it is not the salaries that nurses make!). My work also led to a secondary career in writing two textbooks which has also been rewarding. One of the nice thing about nursing is that if you dislike one job there are many others out there to choose from.
