It's NOT a dead end. Initially, I had feared that too, but my friend and former NS classmate proved the both of us wrong. She had worked at a nursing home for 9 months and during that time she kept plugging away with applications to hospitals all throughout the state and a few out of state. She did get 3 job offers (2 of them were in the same hospital but different units. Now she is working in a med/surg unit and also took a per diem job in a step down ICU floor. So, it can be done with time, patience and perserverance!
I am glad you shared this. You sound a lot like me actually, but you really stuck to your personal beliefs and preferences...you stayed genuine with who you are and did not falter despite what other people may have thought, especially when you stated,
Some uninformed people insist that real nursing only takes place inside the walls of the acute care hospital setting.
