I have recently accepted a position on an intermediate Unit at a large hospital in my city. We will see Observation patients and ED overflow. I know I will see a wide array of patients on this unit and learn a lot. I am really excited to start and build my RN platform. This was the first job to offer me a position so I accepted it without really looking around. I have heard the staff was very welcoming and great to work with.
After gaining experience, I was considering moving to Texas. I have always wanted to move to Houston, Texas. I love it. I also really like cardiac units. (I was unable to land a job in our cardiac units at my hospital. I was a little bummed about it, but very grateful that I did get offered another position). What I want to know is: Is it "difficult" to be a nurse in a new state? How difficult would it be to try and apply for a more specialized intermediate unit, like Cardiac Care?
