Hello everyone!

I have been following posts on this forum for a while now and was hoping I could get some opinions on my situation, as I do not really have any RN mentors I can ask. I am about to graduate from an accelerated program in May (hopefully! With the COVID-19 situation many things have been put on hold so I am wondering how this will affect our completion date). Anyway, I have been interviewing in the meanwhile and have received a job offer on a Cardiothoracic specialty floor - mainly looking after post cath and pacemaker patients. Do you think this is a good first job for a new grad? I am mature (38 y/o) and was previously a veterinary technician, and have a great interest in cardiology, if that has any bearing on your opinion!

Thank you so much for the help!

Depends on the new grad. If you are confident that you can learn what you need to know for the job, then yes it is a good job for a new grad. At 38 yrs old, you should have had some life/work experience to make an informed decision on your ability to quickly learn what you need to know to get through your orientation.
