Hey all! I am a nursing student who will be graduating in April with my BSN. For about a year I have been searching for nursing assistant positions in a hospital, and when my search was coming up short I started applying to nursing homes. I finally got into a nursing home, and about a month later I received a call for an interview at a hospital. I received the job on a acute rehab unit, and went PRN at the nursing home. My main intention for getting a position in the hospital was to gain valuable experience and also get my foot in the door at a hospital. Only issue is that I am not interested in acute rehab nursing at all, I am more interested in ER/Trauma nursing. Will this acute rehab nursing assistant position still give me valuable experience towards getting into the ER/Trauma when I graduate? Has anybody worked as a tech on one unit in a hospital then got a job as a RN on a different unit in the same hospital? And does nursing assistant experience in general look good no matter what unit if you do decide to apply to a different facility? I am just concerned that this position isn't going to give me the experience I am looking for.
