    So funny that in the beginning every new grad dreams of that grand hospital job, and after a few years a good amount of us run screaming from the bedside. Any one of those jobs sounds better than being a floor nurse with the way things are going!

    Yes, but the gold standard for the experience required for 98% of the jobs I see advertised is acute care experience, i.e., hospital.

    Where can most NP opportunities be found? I am an ANCC certified Gero/Adult NP/CNS that has approx 10 yrs of experience and have worked in nearly every setting that pts receive care in these days. I am really looking very hard for the "perfect fit" for myself at this point in my career. I do not think I will have the desire to move around much anymore so have been looking for a great place where I can continue my career and also a place that I will really enjoy enough to spend many years there while working towards building up a good retirement nest-egg. Lately, I have noticed that the retirement benefits are practically non-existent at some places along with other benefits. It's scary what the economy has done to everything. Any suggestions on where I should look would be greatly appreciated!!!
