I just accepted a positon for a NON PAID internship at a local ICU. There is no garuntee that you will ever be offered a job, you have to pay for all these background checks, drug screens, any vaccines, physical, ect...and work nightshift. At the end of this you can pat yourself on the back and put it on your resume, hopefully to get a job someday.
Wait, why did I accept this again?
The only saving grace is that it's ICU. My love. And I'm hoping this may take some of the costs off of my new grad status and I can talk someone into hiring me someday along the line...
AM I CRAZY FOR DOING THIS TO MYSELF?
