I thought that too! But I asked the HR person and it turns out it’s the only unit in the whole hospital that has open positions.

Either way, I appreciate your input.

But again, they didn't throw out your application, if there were no other positions, they still wanted you.

Ummmm....so you and every other new graduate are competing for an extremely small pool of jobs. The LTACH job will teach you a ton. It won’t be your last job and it’ll be good experience. You won’t have to worry about not having enough to do, I promise.

This isn’t the only hospital I’ve applied to. I’ve applied to like 7. I haven’t been offered the LTAC job yet. The reason I’m worried is wanting to get into NP school within 2 years of working full time. So whatever job I take now may very well be my only job considering many hospitals in my area require 18 months to stay on one unit before moving internally.
