    I am a fairly new grad RN...I have been working as an ER nurse in a trauma center and I hate it. I don't like the high pressure high stress environment. I have been in patient care for 5 years and I feel burnt out. I don't have the patience for all the BS- bring me another sprite, I need a 6th warm blanket, we've been here 30 mins already... how much longer until we are discharged, etc. There are also a lot of catty people in my dept and I feel terrible every day that I go in. I think I just hate being a bedside nurse but I don't know what else to do. What else can I do with my degree that isn't direct pt care and how do I get there?! I feel so lost. I love science which is part of the reason I went into nursing. I like learning about the body..how things work and how we fix what's broken. I also like computers.

    Any advice is welcome

    I think this is a great idea. I don't see how asking for payment upfront for non life threatening events is going to be cause for a law suit. No one sues the primary care office or urgent care when they require payment upfront and DON'T do any type of MSE. People need to take responsibility for themselves!

    Well, I finally got an interview! I'll be interviewing Thursday! I also have a nurse recruiter working on another position for me at a different facility. Things are looking slightly better

    You will need to register and pay the fee for fingerprints. I had to do this and found it odd because I already had fingerprints done in my previous state, and they go to AFIS (national database). No sense in arguing though, I shut up, paid the fee and got my prints done again.

    i got an email and phone call from them yesterday setting up an interview, so they are starting to reach out. they said there are only positions in cv areas. good luck to everyone interviewing!
    whaaaaaat only in cv?! what the heck happened?! they advertised positions in all kinds of areas. well that is so disappointing.

    good luck to those interviewing!

    patekgtech- unfortunately, you need at least a year of experience for travel, agency or home health care. ms_sgr- macon isn't an option for me right now but thank you for the suggestion.

    I have heard the market is even worse in FL. I would take the job you have been offered and go from there. At least you will be using some nursing skills and have nursing experience to add to your resume. I am also a new grad and have the same fear as you, I will be stuck in LTC forever if I start there...But the truth is, it's probably better to have SOME rn experience of any kind vs. none. If you really want to stay away from LTC, you could look into flu clinics. I took a job with Mollen Immunization Clinics doing flu shots. There are plenty of shifts still open in GA...although none in the atlanta area right now. Maxim healthcare also does flu clinics and wellness clinics which you could look into to add to your resume and make some money. Theses are obviously temporary solutions but at least it's a start. I know it's a hard time for new grads...we have to stay positive...something will eventually come up.

    19$ an hr without benefits is way too low. negotiate!

    I would take it in a heartbeat...however, I would probably try to negotiate for slightly better pay. What's the worst that happens if you take it? You get a little experience and make some money. You can always keep looking. A new grad with office experience is better than no experience in my opinion.

    Yes I want to go back to school for my BSN and my goal is to become an NP in the future. Problem is still no money. It's too late to apply for FAFSA for this year.
