Yeah, this job is just the means to an end. It's on the Mexican border in Tx. We will most likely not be staying here too much longer. As bad as it is here, I got to start in a level 3 NICU right out of school, and have picked up almost 3 years of level 3 skills and experience that I'll be able to take with me when we move back to civilization.
You can learn something even from bad situations. I work with several very, very good nurses with lots of NICU experience, and they have taught me much over my time here. So, I've sucked up the experience and their knowledge for when we're finally in a position to sell the house and move somewhere away from Mexico.
My wife is also an employee of the same hospital (actually one of the best hospitals in the Rio Grande Valley...), and we're both rather specialized in our career paths, so it'll kinda take a perfect storm for us to both find jobs in our specialties wherever we decide to relocate to.
What part of the country are you hiring in? We need level 3 nicu for me and trauma services for the DW!
