taking part-time job in the hospital from full time LTC

  1. 0
    I have full-time hours, benefits at LTC facility. I wanted to go in the hospital for a while, 3 years into nursing. Applied for a job; was interviewed, for complex continuing care, at the hospital but part time hours, ratio five 8 hour shifts one week, then two 8 hour shift the next rotation. Am I crazy to want take this hospital job and take a large pay cut to do so? did anyone else do this to get their foot in the door in the hospital?

    Thanks for any help

    If you can afford it and can get benefits elsewhere go for it. You can always see if the LTC will keep you as PRN.

    I think I agree with you, to better my experience as a nurse I think its necessary, and keeping casual at my other job works, no benefits suck but I'm young and in good health, I can always get a full-time job down the line.
