    It depends on why you are unsure? I've taken jobs for the hours and was tenative about the job then loved it! But have taken jobs that I was sure I wanted then HATED the job and regretted it.

    I think it really depends on what you are unsure of!

    well, I took because it was my first interview and they offered me the job before I even left the place. I'm not saying ortho is a bad situation, its just that when your fresh out of nursing school, I think you imagine more glamourus positions.
    May I ask what is considered a more glamourus position to you? Not being sarcastic just asking. Some people consider ICU a glam position but I don't. So it all depends on what you consider a "glam" position.

    Well I don't know what in nursing is Glam! But I do love being a nurse!

    As for ortho... I love it give it a try. When ever I manage to get back to hospital nursing I will be back in ortho. :chuckle

    Ortho does give you lots of "nursing" experience for a new grad. (Not that skills= nursing but it gives you confidence). IV's, dressing changes, transfers, post op assesments, pain control, foleys, drains and you get to work with OTs and PTs who can teach you a whole lot.

    Good luck!

    You know, like when you first start nursing, you say " I'm going to be a NICU nurse or a peds nurse, or just anything not dealing with med surg, the not so glamourus floor nursing. I really believe that I will excell in any position I am in, I just am not sure if I should have held out for something else?
