I need some advice. I'm a new grad with an associates degree. I've been looking feverishly for a job for 4 months with no luck at all. Finally, I have an interview for a nurse coordinator position with a nonprofit organization. This company offers primary care services. The only reason I even got this interview was because of someone that I know. If offered this position would it be smart to take it? I'm waiting on the job description to see exactly what my duties would be. When I think of nurse coordinator, administrative work pops into my head.
I really want to work in the hospital or any setting where I can gain clinical skills (suctioning, hanging iv's..etc...etc). Ultimately, I would really love to work in the emergency room. I'm very open to working on a med surg unit. I know the job market is tough and the advice that I'm getting is to take whatever comes my way! Does anyone know how hospitals would view this experience? As a new grad would this be good experience starting out?
