I'm a new grad getting ready to go work at a Rehab Hospital. It's a small subacute facility that deals mostly with TBI's, CVA's, and SCI's, with all sorts of things in between. I wanted to get my start in either med/surg or ICU, but found that (surprise surprise) no one was hiring. So I applied at the facility and got a job offer. I want to eventually get back to the hospital and I worry that being in a rehab hospital will ruin that dream. I love the work that rehab nurses do, but i just don't want to start there. I'm happy
to have a job with the way things are, I just don't want to make a big mistake right out of the gate. Any nurses know if getting into rehab will harm my chances of getting back to the hospital?
I appreciate any advice offered!
