hospital vs. office nursing

  1. 0 I am lucky enough to be in a position where i currently am working at a hospital, but am unhappy with my experience thus far. I am almost finished with my orientation, and then would be moving to nights. I have been offered a position with a doctors office and am not sure what to do. How bad is it to job hop in this profession? Also, would it be difficult to transition back into a hospital setting?Please help!!

    My opinion - give any job a year, even if you hate it. If you don't think another office job will come around, however, you may not want to pass up the opportunity.

    If you can, try to make sure you will not want to return to hospital nursing and will be ok in an office setting for awhile. Although not definite, I have heard and witnessed myself how difficult it can be to try to get hired by a hospital after leaving for another type of setting. I also have personal experience with "job hopping", and was given this label even after staying at a job for a year. When I think I've found my niche, I change my mind. Unfortunately I'm still searching. If you think the office setting is for you and you feel good about it, go for it!
