I'm starting to think it's almost impossible for anyone with LTC/rehab experience to get an acute care job. I am a new grad and I applied for a critical care residency program because my interest is in critical care. I have been a CNA on inpatient rehab at my hospital for almost a year now. They turned me down from the critical care program because, in their words, I did not have enough experience. It's a new grad residency position, so they could only be talking about my CNA experience. Even rehab experience as a CNA is enough to keep you out of the rest of the hospital, apparently. I hope you have better luck than I've been having!
