i'd like your input regarding the best types of nursing experience that will eventually land you an acute hospital job. i am currently working full time as a charge nurse in a SNF (first job out of school). i am thinking about relocating to another state in 6 months where the jobs are even slimmer and just trying to figure out what my next best option would be.
most of my classmates have been working in home health care since graduating. i am mostly curious if it is typically considered more or less desirable to have SNF experience versus home health experience? and where does working in an allergy clinic, medical office, IVF clinic etc fit in in terms of opening doors for hospital jobs?
experienced nurses and/or recruiters i'd really appreciate your input! how do the following fields rank in terms of desirable experience for landing a hospital job?
* SNF / long term care
* home health care
* allergy clinic
* medical office / small clinic
* IVF nurse coordinator
* LTAC (i would assume this would rank highest)
anyone out there work in any of these fields for 1-2 yrs and then land a hospital job?
thanks for your input!
