I had two different job interviews yesterday, and I got both of them; what one should I go with?
A little background to me first would probably help. I graduated last December with my BSN. I passed my boards in April. Then I started a really long hike, thus forgetting many things I learned in school. I finished the 2,184 mile trek of the Appalachian Trail a few weeks before Christmas. Now I am back in northern Maine, and I have been out on the job hunt. Apparently taking a thru-hike is considered professional way up here, because both interviews I had yesterday basically hired me on the spot.
The first interview was at a very small hospital. They offered me a 24 hr position, doing night shifts at $20.05/hr. As a new nurse I know that getting hospital experience is very important.
The second interview was at a nursing facility - a pretty large, really nice one. They do not have any open positions, but they extended an offer for a 40 hr position that they will create me; this position is day shifts at $24.00/hr. I do have 5 years of CNA experience in gerontology and I love working with the elderly, but I really don't know if this is the best choice for me to make in the long run.
What do you all think?
