I will admit that I'm adamant about a med-surg, high-pressure environment--because I KNOW that when it comes time to search for career advancement after working an LTC job, the first thing the next employer-elites will say is, "we're not looking for that kind of experience."
The point is: I'm willing to relocate anywhere
, but just not to work a job that will be looked at condescendingly by these uppity human resource entities. So yes, that may work against me, but if I get the med-surg shot in three, six, nine months--then I'll still be ahead of the game as opposed to if I spent a year cleaning up poop (which I don't consider myself above doing, mind you--I just don't want it to be the ONLY thing I'm doing
And if no job comes in the next nine months or so, then scr*w it, I'll be a pizza man with an RN license the rest of my life.
