I graduated with my BSN in May, took my boards in September and passed! woohoo! Just some personal background on myself, I've been a CNA since I was 15 (now 22) on a Med/Surg/CCU unit, and had an externship on a Hem/Onc/BMT unit during nursing school.
In hunting for my 1st RN job, I've been torn between gaining experience in Adult vs Pediatrics. My heart is really in Peds, but I've been told it would be good to get experience for a couple years. The problem is...I have a job offer in Adult Telemetry & an interview for a competitive Peds Nurse Residency in 2 weeks. What should I do? Do I accept the Tele job and gain experience? Or do I wait to hear if I have a spot in the Peds Nurse Residency? Any advice would be most helpful!
