I got two new grad RN job offers . First is in Atlanta medical center ICU residency program. The second is an oncology RN residency at the VA in Gainsville Florida. The pay for both are comparable. My recruiter at the VA told me that the process of "credentialing" before I start work at the VA could take anywhere between 5 week to 2 months. Residency at Atlanta medical center starts in in FEB( they don't have a fixed date yet). I am excited about working in the ICU but again I am told the the VA is a great place to work and the benefits are superior. I live in Georgia and I need to make a decision within a week or two. I will really appreciate your inputs regarding this .
