If the FT position comes through, take it and just reduce your prn availability (or quit completely) with 3 months under your belt

Maybe that's just me though and back in January I started floating to rehab, med/surg, and tele as needed since I was hired part-time.Two weeks orientation for a new grad with NO experience doesn't seem very safe. I'm not trying to be a debbie downer here, just putting in my two cents with my own experience and those that I've read of others. Does anyone else not see this?
OP, you should take both job offers since the latter one starts in June. You have plenty of time to decide what works best for you, but having a prn job along with a full-time would not be such a bad idea.
