I have been a clinical sales nurse for the past two years. I was recently laid off from a large corporation and now find myself seeking employment. I applied at all the local hospitals with no luck, probably due to not having any recent bedside experience.
I am to start a per diem job next week working as a product educator, 100% travel. Its very similar to what I have done in the past, however, there are no benefits.
Yesterday, a recruiter called wanting me to interview for a Case Manager position, pediatric.
They are willing to train me and pay $26 a hr plus $600 car allowance. (This is about $8 less an hr than the per diem job). It has full benefits, its local, no travel.
I am really trying to decide which would be best. I love to travel, yet, I know it gets old, however, I do like the flexibility of making my own schedule and hate M-F 9-5 gigs, and taking call at night and weekends.
Really torn on what to do!
