Yes ma'am and thanks for the input. The job is only about 20 mintues from my home and a straight shot from the interstate compared to a 45 drive to the city where most work. Benefits look acceptable not outstanding. Nurses and former nurses seem unhappy with the environment but I make my own at my jobs. And the pay cut, if any, would make up in gas and such. I do hve a back up sitter (family) that could possibly help out while I scout more permanent accommodations.
I decided to go on the interview and talk with them some more. I will ask for at least a day to give my decision. My husband and I weren't working at the time I applied and he was to stay with the children but he landed a job a day before my interview. Decisions, decisions..... I do love working and need to have my time.
As far as my experience with psych, I have an agency that sends me to an ALF with a lock down floor. Dementia, alzhiemer's, etc patients. I have experience with home health and oncology so I did inform them that while this is not continuous daily interaction with any psych I was not a deer in the headlights.
I will see how it goes. I never intended thi outcome but I got a wacky hand dealt to me.
Oh and an extra tidbit, this facility is where I had my clinical rotations in nursing school.
