Hello; I am a 42 yo new grad with 15 years' as a CST primarily in L&d, but also a few years as a Pharmacy Tech, and monitor techI was recently offere a oncology fellowship at a magnet teaching hospital; it was the only place that made my heart beat faster when I actually thought of working there. The pay is excellent, even though I have to pay for parking. I will work two 12's and two 8's (D/N) for a year, plus classroom; In a year I should be a certified oncology nurse. Everyone there was super-the NM has been there for 30 years. The DON was awesome, and to my great surprise they offered on the spot. The drawback is that they are at least an hour away-more like 1h 20m, if traffic isn't worse than normal; I have three teen sons, one with some learning issues, and one who has been diagnosed with cortical fibrous defect, who also wrestles and will be in AP and honors classes this fall; my youngest will be walking 30minutes to and from middle school by himself(likely with a friend, though)I have gotten another offer from the hospital where I used to work for an ICU internship; it pays less but they offer $8/hour for nigh differential, and I don't have to pay to park. They are also about 30/40minutes from here, even less in off hours. This place has a mediocre rep-they lost accreditation about 4 years ago (they got it back quickly, though); they are trying to turn it around -My interview was a debacle, because the HR person forgot whattime she told me to come, and I waited 1 h 35min before anyone interviewed me; but I was impressed by the education director for the ICU-she's really trying to make some positive changesThe first place is my dream job (I think), the second place makes more sense as a working mom, and prolly would be more likely to work- So nurses and others, what do you think?
