I finished nursing school
5 days ago. I had one interview for the CCU at a hospital I work at as a ED technician. I found out yesterday that I am being offered the position in the CCU. Tomorrow I have an interview for an ER fellowship at a different hospital. My heart lies in the ER. The hospital I work at does not accept new grads into the ER but the other hospital I have an interview at does.
IF I am somehow offered the ER job I have no idea how to turn down the other job or if I should even turn down the other job at all. I already work at the hospital offering me the CCU position. Should I stay like a year or two and build my skill set and transfer out as an experienced nurse from the CCU to an ER, or should I just take the job in the other hospital if offered to me?
The dilemma I am facing is that I was never given a time limit to accept the offer. The HR told me to call at my earliest covenience to accept the offer and I have no idea how long it will take for the ER to decide if they want to hire me. Would it be in poor taste to accept the job in the CCU and if the ER offers me a position accept that and decline on the CCU after I had accepted?
I have no idea how to handle this if I were to be offered both jobs. I am probably the luckiest new grad.
