Hi guys! I am a new grad nurse and I have 2 job offers and I dont know what to do!!! The first job offer is with a hemodialysis clinic called Davita they will be paying me $31 during a 3 month training and then $33/hr. I like this one because is "hands on" experience and I feel like I could easily get a job in a great hospital after 1 year of hemodialysis experience.

The other job offer is as a RN home care assesment position. Here I will get 74,000 a year (about 15,000 more than Davita). Here is the problem, in this job I will not be able to have "hands on" experience. I can only assess the patient and patient's home and document what I see and what I think they need (ex. A home aid 3 times a week for 8 hours). The salary will be great but I cant touch the patients!

Please help me to make the right choice. My heart says dialysis because of the experience but my wallet says homecare lol. (Sorry for the bad grammar english is my 2nd language 😶)

From what I get from your post, I think you will be happier starting out in the dialysis job. As for the hh position, that kind of job is a lot easier to pick up here and there. You will always be able to find that kind of job, but the other one sounds better and the availability is not as great on a regular basis. Then, there is the matter of the money. Well,..... You could always toss a coin!
