I am a first year RN grad. I have worked almost 1O months on an ICU floor and have been so unhappy. My hours are awful and I have no life. I have wanted so badly to have a better schedule. I applied for a job at a state of the art cancer center and to my surprise I was offered the position. It's more money than I make now and I know I was chosen over other applicants. They also offered days only, no weekends, all paid holidays and 3 weeks paid vacation to start. I was pretty happy but now am having doubts. All my friends that I went to nursing school
said I should stay the year and come do travel nursing. They said I will ruin my chances for other things of I don't stick it out. I am just really confused right now. Anyone out there have any thoughts? Also if I take this job they are allowing me to take 2 weeks and go with a team of doctors and nurses to Africa to work in hospitals. If I decide to do the travel nursing I won't be able to do that. But if I don't stick it out for the year I have been told it will look bad and hurt my chance for other positions. Very Confused!
