Hello, just looking for feed back. I graduated a little over a year ago with my BScN RN. I accepted somewhat of a 'sponsership' from the LTC facility I am employed with and have been employed with since my first year in the nursing program.
During the summer prior to my last year as a student I was offered a handsome sum of money if I promised to remain with the company and work as an RN once I graduated. I readily agreed. The money played a big part in my decision BUT frankly....I LOVED MY JOB as a PSW and I LOVE MY JOB as a Registered Nurse. The issue is I recently ran into one of my advisors from school. She seemed a bit surprised and disappointed that I was still employed in LTC. She suggested I may want to strongly look for another RN position very soon now that I have put my year in. Her reasoning is that since nursing continually changes that I might end up not finding a job in say three or four years if I ever decided to work in the hospital setting. I seriously did think that I was not going to stay with LTC forever BUT I wanted to stay a lot longer than one year. OH BOY....now what?
