Hello. I think I've made my decision but just need help to kind of verify it. I will be graduating in one week with my BSN and have two job offers.. neither are really my ideal job but I understand in this market in a small area with 300 new nurses I'm lucky to have anything. One is for a LTC facility as a assistant unit manager.. salaried position.. pay is a bit lower than expected (42,400) but insurance is free so it kind of makes up for it and it's close by. The facility is ok and they did work with me on the salary as I asked for $2.00 more an hour and they gave it to me. I would be doing a combo of med passes and treatments, documentation etc. as well as managerial type things such as committees etc. The other job is the oral surgeon's office I currently work in as a secretary would like me in the back assisting.. I would push the meds during IV sedation, follow up with docs an pts, triage calls, collect hx and do assessments, monitor during surgery, etc. Pay would be about the same but insurance is the same as we already have I think. So anyways, just wondering which is the better option for a new grad? I don't think the office job would be great experience as I eventually would like to work OB in the hospital or in an inpatient psych unit (two very different fields I know lol) whereas the LTC I know would be better hands on experience but I know with new grads it isn't also the best to be in a managerial postion.. my thinking is they just call all RNs "managers" as I'm not the unit manager. nurse manager, supervisor, charge nurse, etc. I just know LTC gets such a bad reputation.. it makes me nervous to accept their offer. So I am thinking of calling this LTC in the morning and accepting but just wanted some opinions! Thanks!
