Below is a description of two jobs. I just need some assistance deciding which one would be best for a new grad. keeping in mind that I have student loan payment starting in a few weeks. I really need FT, but Im not sure I can handle being in charge and learning everything required simultaneously.
job #1: British Home (Cantata): Initially a registry postion (at least 2 shifts per pay period, no benefits, 23.00/hr). They hire everyone onto registry at first. but there is not a for sure legnth of time that it would take to get a full time positon. It would be in their long-term care nursing facility, with 13-15 patients per RN. I would start on the day shift to train. the legnth of orientation was not guarteed. but anywhere from 2-6wks.
job #2: Alden Northmoor Rehabilitiation and Health Center: FT position with full benefits (8hr shifts (11pm-7am) 5 days a week, 24.00/hr.) guartanteed to have at least 2 wks orientation, more if I need it, oriented to all shifts. as night nurse, only 1 RN per floor at night with anywhere 30-50 patients. 4 floors. one is recent post-op/rehab patients, others are long term residents, and a dementia floor. Since
I would be the only RN on the floor, im in charge.
I know the FT positon would be better, but Im not sure if it would be an overwhelming task for a recent grad. your opinion would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!
