I was wondering if anyone could offer their opinion on this. I currently work as a nursing asssitant on a step-down unit and I'm in the middle of training to become a PCT. I start nursing school
this fall and my ultimate goal is to become an OB-GYN nurse. In order to transfer to another hospital, I have to remain at my current position for at least a year, and that'll be Oct/Nov for me. As much as I love working on my unit, I know that is quite difficult to obtain an RN position in L&D. I've heard that it would be helpful to work med-surg for a year or two, but I would really love to get my foot in the door somehow working in a nursery. I was looking for positions yesterday and I found a PCT position for the L&D unit at a local hospital. My question is: Would it be too early for me to apply for a transfer positon to L&D? Should I stay on my step down unit where I see various illnesses and learn from the nurses there? Or should I just wait a little longer? Thanks!
