Hi! I am a recent grad and have been looking for jobs for a few months. The Children's Hosptial in my area is brand new and it is kind of tough to get jobs there right now as a new grad. I have been offered two jobs and can't decide which one would help me achieve my dream job of NICU or PICU. The two jobs are a Trauma step down unit in a level I trauma hospital and a 26 bed labor and delivery position (not postpartum). I don't know which one would give me better experience. The interview for l&d made it seem like those nurses DO NOT leave and are "lifers." While I think I would like this initially more than the trauma step down (because of the babies) I don't know which job would look better on my resume for a PICU or NICU job in the future. There is also a possiblilty of moving out of state in a year or two as well. The schedule for the trauma step down is self schedule and everyone seemed great when I shadowed. Everybody had unique things and tons of drains and drips that I think would give me good rounded experience, but I just love the babies and like the fast paced feeling of l&d (even though the scheduling there is every other weekend, every other holiday). Does anybody have any advice on which one will be best for me in the long run? Thanks!
