from snf to acute careRegister Today!
- by transformers755 Jan 25Hi there! Im currently a nurse with almost two years of experience now in a snf. My desire is really to get into a hospital eventually. But unfortunately, hospitals always require acute care experience whenever i look up and apply for a job. I was just wondering, in this case, if I will ever get a chance to work in a hospital. I am also thinking of inquiring for something like a versant or a re-entry RN program as a starting point in order to get in. Any thoughts? thanks.

Consider transitioning through a rehab hospital if the acute care centers aren't biting.

Good luck to you!
