Hi, I'm an RN, BSN in the Houston area. I graduated in May but was applying for positions before that. Out the seemingly hundreds of applications I've put in, I've had only two interviews, neither of which worked out. At this point, I'm feeling pretty hopeless and really just need a job. I know I could get a nursing position if I were open to moving to a small town, but at this point I can't because my husband is an orchestra teacher and most small school districts don't even have orchestra programs.
My question is this: would I be throwing away my chance at being a nurse in the future if I took a job in a completely different field right now? In the few days I've been applying for other fields, I've already had multiple interviews in marketing and I'm certain I could get a job in that field. I really need the money right now, but I don't want to lose my chance at nursing. Help?
Erasing my previous comment. Just read that you can not relocate.
