Hi! I am new here, so if I mess up somehow or put it in the wrong spot, I am very sorry. I am not a nurse and am not even in nursing school
yet. But a couple months ago I started volunteering at a rehab hospital. I only volunteered twice before life happened and I wasn't able to make it down there anymore because of a lack of money. But I did email the volunteer coordinator apologizing and explaining the situation. Well she brought up the suggestion of applying to work with them. And before I even had a chance to do it myself, the human resources director messaged me and was really kind and enthusiastic about trying to get me to apply to work for them. So I did and now I am hired by them. Yay! I start on the 13th. She mentioned that they will help me pay for school, and I think that is a wonderful thing. I was just wondering though... I am not sure what kind of nurse I want to be yet. But from reading posts on here, some people don't go into a hospital right away, or they leave the hospital, and then have a hard time trying to find a job in one again. This place is a hospital level, but it is standalone and only rehab. I am just worried if I take them up on the school paying aspect of this and then work for them in turn after I graduate, if I will be dooming myself to never being able to work in an actual hospital?
