So the time is almost hear for me to select options for where & what I want to do my capstone practicum & leadership course in my last semester (starting in August). I know that I want to work in the ED after graduation as I had my internship there last summer and absolutely LOVED it! However, I interviewed for a nursing assistant position there during my internship & they didn't hire me (they said because I would be graduating as an RN too soon). I currently work in the PACU as a nursing assistant-btw all these positions are in the hospital we do clinicals at & I want to stay there after graduation. Here's my dilemma: do I do my last semester in the ED where I had my internship & want to work, or do I try for a different small, rural hospital in med/surg so that I will get opportunities to have nursing experience in all areas, including the ED?
