    They were hiring for a 40 hr week, but I told them I'm in clinical Monday's from 4-10 p so I really didn't want to work 11-7 after being in clinical all night. They were really nice about that and told me I could do the 32 hours a week instead. They told me at the interview that they would do whatever it took to get me thru RN school, so I'm sure they are really flexible. I do like the fact that I would get patient care experience b/c I'm like you, a little shaky when it comes to patient communication.

    As for the ER job, they told me they would cross train me in the trauma bays. Wouldn't I be doing vitals and such when they come in. And I'm thinking I would get to witness some things I have never seen before. I don't know, I'm confused! I guess I'll figure it out eventually!

    Thanks a million.

    I still say go for the RNT position. Sounds like you'll get more hands-on experience going that route; however, the decision is up to you!

    My worth. Take the ER job. Sure the rehab is hands-on, but honestly I don't think tech experience (vital signs, making beds, etc) will really help you land a new grad RN position especially in this economy. I was an LPN for years before recently becoming an RN and that hasn't helped me very much in landing a hospital new grad job. Right now a new grad is basically just a new grad, only RN experience truly matters. I think getting to know the people in the hospital system would be more advantageous to you. Lots of times, it's who you know. And at the hospital you'll get to know many people. Also the hours are more conducive to your schooling and family, which is the top priority.
    The decision is clear to me.
