Ok - odd career path due to drastically different economies in drastically different areas - I am leaving my first nursing job after 9 months to relocate for personal reasons. I did Med/Surg at a big teaching hospital. Hated it, horrible. Hospital politics, hierarchy, bedside nursing, not for me.
Anyways, got a possible job at a SNF and then a possible clinical research position - the latter is more of a dream job, but it takes me away from my clinical experience/nursing skills that help me get PRN jobs, back in a hospital, etc. SNF sounds pretty terrible but it keeps my experience up, plus I have great hours and the commute is amazing.
Anyways, thoughts? I'm looking to get out of bedside, so really, I think the research position is great. However, where I'm going, the economy is so terrible that the more rounded experience I have, I feel the better in search of prospects and income.
Hope this isn't too confusing - any thoughts would be great (gentle, please).
