Community hospital vs. teaching hospital??? newbie needs help ...pls!!!!!

  1. 0
    i have a slight problem. I applied for an ER job at a medstar hospital. went for an interview ( small community hospital) and i strongly believe i will get the job. I also applied at UMMc for thier CCU or Imc position but havent gotten an interview yet. I got an offer from Maryland General(med surg floor with peds and vents..)..great benefits but turned it down ( bad reviews from people) . my problem is that people tell me that as a new grad ( i graduate may 06) ..it will be better if i go to a teaching hospital like UMMC or Hopkins instead of a small community hospital even if the teaching hospital ofers me a med surg floor. I dont know what to do. BTW i also have an interview at Hopkins and they only offered a tele floor with rotating shifts which i absolutely hate.
    I dont know what to do...pls help? WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF COMMUNITY HOSPITALS VS bIG TEACHING HOSPITALS? AND WILL MY DECISION AFFECT ME IN THE LONG RUN? Sometimes i wish i had waited till i passed my boards before applying to hospitals..i have a c onstant headache now.

    LizzieJ,

    Hopkins advertises positions in their ICUs--were you not interested or offered one of these positions? Just curious. Thanks,
