Hi there! I'm getting ready to graduate in May with my BSN and am currently interviewing for jobs. My dream is to work in peds and go become an FNP. I was unable to land a job in peds at the local hospital where I live now but have an offer for adult med-surg (not very excited about it). I also have a more enticing offer a few hours away towards where my family lives in the pediatric ICU. I'm very torn because I'm so drawn to the peds job, but don't want to move away from the life and friends I have here in town. However, if I stay, I'll have the comfort of the town I love and friends I know but then I'll be sacrificing the job that'll give me more experience I desire. Does anyone have any advice about which choice to make? I'm trying to weigh my pros and cons but seem to be running in circles here.

You can make friends wherever you move, and go visit the friends that you leave. Take the peds ICU. Adult med surg will not take you anywhere near your goal if you want to work with peds
