I am a new grad and was offered a job in LTAC for $30/Hr with a 6:1 nurse pt ratio (no vents-they are in our ICU). As a new grad I am having a hard time finding a job and it's this or LTC ... Do hospitals frown on this sort of experience? Also, how does this job compare to a med/surge position in the hospital? I know what type of patients we have and they have a lot of issues AND I know I will be very busy. Is there anything in particular I should prepare for? How is job satisfaction in this specialty? I am excited, but nervous at the same time.
