    It depends on what your nursing career goals are. Do you hope to work in a hospital one day? Do you want to specialize in somthing like ICU or L&D? If so then take the med surf job will give you the best start. But if you have no real desire to work in the hospital and want less stress (there will still be some stress) then the dialysis center is a better choice. You'll most likely have a set schedule, you'll get to now your patients and will be able to establish a routine.

    Also consider pay, benifits, work place culture, and length of orientation. Good luck!
