I'm in need of advice. I'm from PA and have been a RN for 4 years. All 4 of those years have been spent doing pediatric home care and in the past year I picked up a casual part time position at a long term care facility. I recently was presented with a nursing supervisor position at the LTC facility for 3-11p shift. Although I really could use a full time position, Im questioning a few things.
1. I never had the chance to experiencing working in a hospital. I feel like if I accept this, I may lose some of my skills or get stuck in administration. I'm young and still in the beginning so I don't mind being on the floor.
2. The only shift available is 3-11p. I have two young children. One almost 2 and the other almost 4. I would never get to put my kids to bed or feed them dinner or see my partner. Once my oldest starts school, I'd hardly see her either.
3. After being a nurse for 4 years and having never worked in the hospital, is it even likely for me to get hired?
Above are my most major concerns. Am I being to picky and missing out on a great opportunity? It would make things so much easier financially but I feel like Im selling my soul. To the other nurses in supervisory/administrative position, how much clinical/hands on experience did you have? Are you less stressed and happier than on the floor?
