Ill be honest, L&D had a glimmer of interest with me, but nothing can hold a candle to the elusive ED. I did my preceptorship in an ED and each day I had this feeling of "home" rush over me as I walked through the doors. However, in this economy we take what we can get, and I got L&D. I like my job. I don't hate it. It's "ok". Just not "home"....but tell me the truth...that magical "first year" in L&D won't get me into the ED, will it? I can sell myself in an interview, I am relatively smart, I have ACLS, BLS, PALS, NRP and am taking ENPC in a few weeks. I am doing whatever I can to get into the ED, I'm just afraid that L&D won't get me there. I'm more than willing to go into Med/Surg for a year after this one....but I want to get back to my "home" feeling when I go to work and I just don't have that in this unit.
