Possible Job Dilemma

  1. 1
    My dilemma is whether to choose from a 8-5 M-F Clinical Pulmonary job within a hospital system, or a rehab hospital position that is nights. I am still considered a new grad with only 6 months of correctional nursing experience and my goal is to one day be a L&D nurse (I know neither of these jobs match).....

    So I was wondering which job would be the best to pick, or does it not matter and should I just choose the one that gives the best pay/hours/benefits.

    Thanks a bunch!

    I think the rehab hospital would be considered acute care, and therefore give you a better chance at being hired into a hospital than a clinic position.

    Does correctional nursing not count as acute?

    No. It is considered a community health or public health position. Acute care experience generally means an inpatient hospital setting.

    So it might be difficult to go back into acute care even through the same organization? The clinic is apart of hospital system.
