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!Last edit by VickyRN on Aug 7, '12 : Reason: spelling

- Aug 7, '12 by Ashley, PICU RNI 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.
- Aug 7, '12 by itsnoworneverDoes correctional nursing not count as acute?
- Aug 7, '12 by Ashley, PICU RNQuote from itsnoworneverNo. It is considered a community health or public health position. Acute care experience generally means an inpatient hospital setting.Does correctional nursing not count as acute?
