Well let me start by giving some background on my nursing life I received my RN in May 2012 got my first job at a nursing home. I was a stay at home mom 2 years before getting a job so I took a prn since its still hard on me leaving. My dream job is OB lol go figure my own labor experience actually made me want to do OB.
I'm persistent, exactly a year later I was finally offered one I kept in touch with the hiring manager built rapport with her absolutely love her and would love to work with her.. at this hospital I was first offered E.R. then a week later offered OB so I accepted OB.. 5 days before orientation i was called from HR, the CNO role took back my offer due to low census and all they would offer me to do is med surg..then transfer when Ob opened up. I am not to fond of medsurg..so now back to square one applying for jobs. I applied for E.R. offered a position. i don't know if i should take it or not. im really scared but I do need experience that's for sure. i need my skills freshened up for sure. but also i don't want to do anybody wrong i feel if offered an Ob job id take that-dream job! also don't know if i should do a midshift or night shift. the manager recommends nights because id get better training and skills on nights as opposed to the crazy midshift.. I want to do this for experience but im really nervous. i feel like i don't know anything or enough to be in E.R. but people say the dr is always there you work as a team and you will learn! but im weary because im not so hot on skills I don't feel that confident on knowledge base for ER but I feel its hard these days to get any job and I need to be thankful and take the opportunity to learn and grow in my career so I can get my dream job make the best of it try my hardest! im just confused as to which way to go. any advice, opinions would be much appreciated! and Thank you!
