Just out of interest, I was wondering how long everyone spent in their first jobs?
I'm hoping to go into a critical care area (either NICU or PICU which is outside my Adult branch). Those that will take me with no experience all requite me to complete professional developement by seccondment. Thats really exciting and I'd love to do this, but how long would I be expected to stay in that job after you've done the training? I was thinking you'd be expected to stay a few years at least.
the thing is I've always wanted a gap year after uni but i'm worried about going away for a year and a half and then struggling to get a job when i'm back (espeically considering the long time i'd have had from graduating to starting work...think that'd be realy bad?). Therefore I was wondering if i could do my clinical experience and then take a year out.
whoops i'm starting to ramble on.
