Hello! I am a recent grad and just passed my boards....officially an RN!
I went into school with a strong desire to work in Maternal/child health, but kept an open mind. Now that I've graduated, I still have that desire. (Not really at all interested in adult nursing, unless its ob/gyn.) Just like everyone else, my instructors encouraged us to get our BSNs and a year of med-surg experience.
I plan to start my BSN this spring while I work. I recently had two job interviews....one in a hospital setting, nights, probably on a respiratory/med-surg floor. The other is in a very busy, large peds office as a triage nurse, no evenings, Sundays, or major holidays. The second being more appealing to me and in my field of interest.
Here's my dilemma....would I be killing any hopes of getting a hospital job in peds or mother/baby in the future if my first experience is in a dr office? Does having a BSN vs. ADN with dr office experience make a difference if I want to go into a hospital setting?
TIA for any and all advice!
