Hi everyone! This board has been such a great place for support for me during nursing school, graduation, NCLEX anxiety and now as a new nurse. So here I am with yet another question.
Here's the situation; My husband is in the Air Force, we have been blessed enough to stay in one place for almost 5 years, but now we are facing a move. My question is; when we move I will have a total of 7 months experience in a cardiovascular ICU. Will I have a hard time finding a job? Will I be treated as a new graduate because I dont have that one year of experience? I have completed a critical care course and also will have ACLS under my belt.
This is our first move since I have graduated (May 2002) and I am finding it really has a big affect on me. I want to be proactive!! So any thoughts would be much appreciated!!
I have a friend in a similiar situation..she moved after 6 months of med/surg experience and 6 months of community health experience. It took her almost 2 months to find anything and she settled for a job she wasnt too excited about. She was treated as a new graduate and I dont want to go through the headache she has if I dont have to. Has anyone else been in this situation??
Thank you so much in advance! I truly value the opinion of you each
P.S. We will be moving to Colorado Springs..anyone have any info on the local hospitals??
