I graduated in May of 2012. In July I started as an RN on a cardiac pulmonary stepdown unit of a large hospital. It has been tough but I am getting it. I have been offered a job as an RN in a nursing home that will give me 80 hours per week instead of 72 and $4 more per hour. It will also be a day shift as opposed to an overnight shift.
I am torn. I would like the additional money and the day shift but I am worried that a nursing home will do long term damage to my career. Are my fears justified or unfounded? Your advice is appreciated. Thanks!
