I was really happy to get offered a job in an acute rehab hospital, as I wanted something more acute. But the week before my orientation I failed to have my monthly and took a pregnancy test and sure enough...POSITIVE
! I have been married several years with no children, as I just finished my RN in December and my husband is set to finishing nursing school (his 2nd degree) Dec of this year, we are excited!
The excitement died down a bit as it is very early in the pregnancy, and all I can think about is how the director who interviewed me talked about how busy, fast-paced and crazy it is. Plus looking at the information they gave me, the insurance will not go into affect for another 2.5 months and 2-3Xs what a pay now in LTC and will only increase when I add a baby, my current employer is Catholic funded so insurance covers whole family: you, spouse and as many children as you can have with no extra cost. Plus she said they have a lot of isolation patients and there is heavy lifting, so I have a call out to my doctor about that. But I am suddenly less excited about this job offer, Is it do-able?? Safe??
If I wait until early next year I won't be a new grad any more. Then just as this realization came to me I was called about a telephonic contract to hire position for a medical research company, I interview on Friday. It is not exactly what I want but is less active and stressful. I do not need
either as I currently work in a great snf that is not too hard and I have been there nearly 3 years, mostly as an LPN, though I am starting to feel burned out there. I have yet to hear back from any large accute hospitals I have applied to, and I can not bank on that happening in the next two months, before I start to show as I have been applying for the last 4 months.
I am just really confused and don't know what to do?? How would I even take back my acceptance of the position?? can I request part time or PRN if my OB says it is okay??
I really did not want to tell anyone as it is so early.
