New Grad, Need Advice

  1. Hello everyone!

    I graduated with an ADN in California and recently passed the NCLEX. Ideally, I would like to work at a hospital, so I have been keeping my eyes open for new grad programs. In my job hunt, I noticed that some clinics are willing to hire and train new grads like myself. I landed an interview with an oncology practice for a full-time position. At this point, I am open to all sorts of experience and specialties. There is some pressure for me to get hired right away because my loans will be knocking on my door soon. That and a strong desire to get started on the field (I did wait quite a while for my ATT). Would you guys recommend working at smaller clinics/practices as a new grad? Or should I stick to new grad programs offered by big hospitals? I would appreciate you sharing your thoughts. Thank you
