When it rains, it pours
After graduating nursing school
in May and passing my NCLEX, I've had the hardest time finding an ED position. This week, I've received two offers. Both are good and I'd like to make an informed decision.
One is with a rural hospital in a cool mountain town of 10,000 residents and not much of a tourist influx. It's a Level IV trauma center. The other is with an urban 40-bed ED, downtown and at the intersection of two interstates, and it is NOT a trauma center (the manager emphasized this to me a few times). The ED is very busy with all other medical cases.
So, my question is particularly about the second offer. What could I be missing by working at a large ED that does not take traumas? Would I ever be hindered when changing jobs? Am I missing out on something that I have to experience? THANK YOU for any insight.
