It’s finally happened. The corporate insanity overtaking my hospital is driving me nuts, and I’m looking for a new job. I sent my resume to these nurse recruiters and they are trying to help me out. I told them I want to work in a place that truly values their nurses, and they understand that I’m not a corporate drone. I won’t sacrifice patient care in order to make someone else rich. I hope these gals can help me find a job like these nurses have. Take a look.

Here’s Nurse Nan delivering bedside patient care. Forget irksome JCAHO regulations, Nurse Nan hates VMAR machines, and she passes medications with the use of an old-fashioned pill tray. She is smiling, and there is a spring to her step. She only has four patients today, and she really loves her job. I love her cap. I rate her cap a 10 based on the
Emergiblog nursing cap scale. Nurse Nan has a collegial relationship with the doctors. They never scream at her or try to belittle her at the nurses station. Doctor James is assessing his patient, and he asked Nurse Nan for her opinion about the patient’s condition. Dr. James understands that nurses are intelligent professionals, and that they are the cornerstone of good patient care. This sounds like a dream job, but on second thought, I’ve been away from medical-surgical nursing for a long time, so I don’t know if I could do this job.

Here’s a job that looks intriguing. I want to work where people notice my special talents. Look what happened to Student Nurse Kitty Walters. She’s not even out of nursing school yet, and some hotshot movie producer wants to make her a star. Every nurse is a star in his or her own right, and fewer nurses would leave the profession if employers appreciated them and treat them with respect. Perhaps I should send my resume to a talent agent. Maybe some movie director is looking for an old burned out psychiatric nurse to play the role of Nurse Mildred Ratched in a remake of One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.


I’m ready for my close up Mr. Demille.

Nurse Marcie is a very lucky young woman. She has a dream job complete with her own island and her own yacht. She also has a cute guy waiting on her hand and foot. He is at her beckon call. Nurse Marcie has the luxury of working in a serene environment, surround by nature. She works independently, and her patients treasure her. I’m asking my nurse recruiters to start looking for an island that needs a psychiatric nurse, but I’m not holding out much hope. I doubt that too many people become depressed while living in an island paradise. Drat!

While the recruiters are looking over my resume, I’m going to start looking for my dream job at nursingjobs.org. They have a lot of listings, and you never know what you can find until you start looking.
