Ok here is my deliema. I am currently working in long term care but it is my dream to work in Pedatrics. I've been a nurse for 4 years one on medsurg the rest in long term care management. I have applied many times unsuccessfully to a pediatric floor. Today I have an interview with a pediatric home health company. I don't want to leave my company because the benefits are good but I hate the hours and what I'm doing. I don't know if it's better to accept the home health position for experience and keep this job in order to stay in network. Or leave entirely to have a easier schedule in order to see my family more and reapply not as an associate. The company I work for is building a new children's hospital in 2017 so I know they will need nurses. I just don't think I can swing working 7 days a week until then. I work Monday-Friday 8-5 now so if I take the home health I can only work on the weekend or after this job. Unfortunately this is the only pedatric hospital in the area.
