I'm new to this site, and I have to say it's an awesome resource for nurses/students! Here is my situation: I got my BSN at UConn a couple years ago. I moved to NYC for an exciting change and worked in a large teaching hospital for about 9 months on a med/surg unit. I then ended up working a fertility clinic for a year which was an interesting and much needed change.
I have since moved back to CT and was looking into travel nursing. However, it seems I need more med/surg experience before doing that. I really didn't want to get a permanent position in CT. Does anybody have any suggestions for me? Should I bite the bullet and get a permanent position in a hospital? Is per diem nursing an option? Should I look into local agency nursing? It seems they also want at least a year of recent experience. I just hate the idea of being tied down to one facility. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks a lot!
