Well I finally got a job offer as a FT RN/BSN faculty member at a local and upcoming college in my hometown which pays me $80,000 per year with benefits after 90 days and a 401k after 5 months of employment with paid time off starting day 1. Should I be happy?! I think its a start but I wish it was in a clinical setting. I just became certified and I don't want to get rusty with my skills. After numerous applications, this was the only company who returned my call and interviewed me the very next day! My classmates are also experiencing the same thing. These private MDs just don't wanna pay!! I live in South Florida and the market is horrible for APNs except in education which has all of a sudden picked up, especially in the private institiutions. I am way beyond frustrated! Did I go to school for nothing and accumulate all this debt?!
