Have put up some posts recently about my struggle to get back into a hospital setting.
I worked 13 years in a hospital most of the time NICU. I currently do homecare, pediatric.
I have been applying to hospitals in the New York area. I have landed 2 interviews both for a NICU. I was not hired due to the fact I have been out of the hospital setting for almost 5 years now.
I Interviewed and was offered a job for a long term care facility, and it is about 1 hour transit time .
I know ill get a lot of slack for this, but I really didn't like the unit at all. It's not somewhere I really would be happy working. Do I take the job in hopes it will help me back into a hospital?
I still think hiring managers will not consider this experience since it is Long term. What to do?
My major negatives are
It's not the kind of unit I would like to work,
The pay is just ok (same for my homecare case)
It's a nursing job in a facility
Will this kind of job help me back into a hospital?
