I am an RN on medicine unit- I graduated in April, so I am still very new
I never really enjoyed bedside nursing as a student and still don't like it very much :/ I was planning on going into public health right after graduation because I loved my preceptorship experience there but I was disappointed to hear that casuals barely get any shifts... (<3 a month). So I applied for a new grad program and got into acute care. However, I still think about going into public health so I've been looking at job postings but it looks like they all want at least 6 months of public health or 1 year of maternity/pediatrics experience. When I look at job postings for mat/peds, they also ask for 1 year of mat/ped exp so I don't understand how I am suppose to make my way! I could apply for a sponsorship program that is being offered by my health authority, but it requires 1-2 yrs of clinical experience
I am so lost...
Can anyone help me, please!
