    Thanks guys! I worked in the hospital float pool, in one of the places I got an offer (CVICU). As an CNA a year before I started NS and straight out of high school. I still work in that float pool, as I was hired PRN, so I am going on my 3rd year of employment as a CNA with the facility. I live on SE NC, the market is not nearly as bad here as it is other places. Most of my classmates have interviews, about 60% have offers as of now. I hope for the best with you guys!

    I have an offer for an ICU position. I believe I am turning it down as I am holding out for L&D/NICU.

    I would be nervous about turning down a job. L&D is a very tough area for new grads to get into in any economy, especially right now. Many of the skills you will learn in ICU will be very helpful in L&D.


    PacMan, which are you going to take, ER or CVICU?

    I am still undecided as of now, to see what other offers I get. I applied to 2 other very nice hospitals and won't here from them till the end of this month. I have some time before i have to make a final decision. I think I will do CVICU though.

    The job field where I am at isn't near as tight as other areas. ICU definitely wasn't for me so I'm comfortable with my decision. Plenty of medsurg positions open if I don't get the LD position I want PatMac-Good luck in your decision!

    Thanks Katie! Same to you! I'm glad the job market isn't bad around here too. There are a good amount of openings for new grads, mostly in the spring when graduations are held, whether you be a new grad, ADN, or BSN. I'm thankful for that.
