Job decision


Hello, I recently got my RN license in October. I have been employed at a treatment center as a per diem nurse. I recently got an offer for a position that has availability for 3rd shift or per diem. I want a full time job but I am nervous about working third shift and I think my head would spin if I got another per diem position. Please keep in mind that I already work full time but it is a non-nursing job and I still have the per diem shift at the treatment center. My goal is to find a full time job in nursing. Do you think I should take the 3rd shift job.

Specializes in Critical Care, Education. Has 35 years experience.

We don't want your head to spin. Wait for something better to come along.

If you don't financially need the job, don't take it. I took on a 3rd shift job without needing the money and I ended up breaking down a few months and needing to quit. Now I am a new grad who didn't stick to her job instead of just a new grad.
