Okay, here's the deal. I am leaving my current employer (a human service agency in non nurse position)with whom I've been with for nearly 25 years to work as a Nurse full time. I am a new graduate btw.
I've been offered fulltime work at a really nice nursing and rehab facility 7 -3 shift every other weekend.
BUT I am also real close to being offered a fulltime LPN position 7am - 7pm 3 day per week sched on a cardiac monitoring unit in a community hospital. What I am look for is you input. Anything will be greatly appreaciated.
well first of all 25 years on a job is a long time so I take it you are maybe middle aged? well hopefully you have a nice 401K or roth IRA thats well to do,and maybe your home is paid off,kids grown,if you fit that shoe,I would go for my RN,and then hit the travel road as a travel nurse and she the world for free/working vacation,but take a specialty that you like,because to me rehab,and LTC are fast burn outs.I think cardiac would be a better choice,because you just will have more options,rather LPN/RN if you want to travel.I stated out in MPLS,minnesota,work agency LTC/MEDSURG in the summer and then played snowbird for the winter,TX,virgin islands,hawaii.every winter it was someplace diffrent,so thats a option that might intrest you,and as far as the finance stuff.I check suze orman's show and e-mail her a lot,and I have got wonderful advice for free.but thats just my opinon.
also check with the cummuter she always seems to have good advice.
