I honestly would not be happy in a medical surgical setting. From my rotations in schools
, and from what I've learned from others, working in a medical surgical setting is not why I became a nurse. And although I like El Paso for demographic and familial reasons, it is quite dangerous with continuous cartel activity. I will not disclose the hospital in El Paso, but I am not a fan of it either for various reasons. These are some things that make El Paso last on the list.
If seems most of you are confirming my fears that with going the corrections route, I am gambling big time with that 12 month limited term. I am going to get more information on the limited term.
The #2 hospital is actually Midland Memorial in Midland. I actually like the hospital a lot. Many people have great things to say about it, it has a great reputation and as I understand it--it is a teaching hospital. Also, a few of my fellow classmates ended up there and they all enjoy it except for the pay, haha. The thing is, that area in Texas is going through a housing crisis due to some oil boom in the area that has attracted a massive growth in population, the housing infrastructure cant keep up. This of course hikes prices up and I'm seeing modest apartments for 1000-1200 monthly (YIKE$!!!!!!!) That would be half my check. I would also have to support my SO while she finds a job, and I'm not sure 22/hour @36Hrs/Week would allow me to accomplish that. We are also hardcore liberals afraid of persecution from GWB's homeland, haha.
Funny enough, the comment that resonated the most was "ED Bro!!!" cause that's what all my friends would say.
Thank you all for all your advice.
