Hi all! I currently work on a rehab unit as a tech during nursing school
and I will graduate nursing school in the spring. I just got a job offer for a part time night position from the unit manager, which is great. However, I am hesitant to take it. First of all, my fiance lives 2 hours away, and can't change locations due to his job. Second of all, the nurses on this unit don't do the skills that a nurse would do on a med surg, or other specialty unit, and I am afraid I won't learn much after graduating and lose all of my skills. Also, I really would like to work full time if at all possible. I need the benefits.
I like my position as a tech here, but overall I think it's a "boring" unit and is not the type of nursing i'm looking at doing. I feel like I should accept the position just to have a job, but then again I feel like I will hate ever second of being here. I have been in a long distance realtionship with my fiance for 4 years now, and was really looking forward to finally moving to the same city and being able to see each other. Also, like I said before, I just don't find the unit interesting and I am afraid to lose my skills.
I haven't started searching at any other hospitals yet, so its not like I have exhausted all other options....I'm just confused :/
What would you do??
