    Adult vs. Pediatric Job Offer?!

    LOL hey thanks for the info! I'm almost 29 haha. Have lived in many different cities, as well as France. I am not worried about venturing out (I've been in Miami for the past year for my ABSN w/o knowing a soul), I just wasn't sure if it was better to go with a lesser known Children's Hospital in a city I know nothing about, or a Magnet University hospital in a city I enjoy. I am aware it is a *simple* dilemma and easy decision. The unknowns of nursing and experience are what are giving me stress I suppose. Thank you for the tough love though! I need it LOL.

    Adult vs. Pediatric Job Offer?!

    Also wanted to add: the pay is basically the same (give or take .50 cents), the benefits are basically the same, the PTO includes a few more days at the magnet hospital, but everything else is the same.
  3. Hello everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster 🙂 I will be graduating with my BSN through an accelerated post-bac program this May (yay!). I have been applying to jobs since the beginning of the year, and was offered a position in a new grad residency program that starts early August. The offer is at a magnet hospital that is a 511-bed community-based, acute care teaching facility, in an adult cardiac stepdown unit. I got the offer 1.5 months ago, and finally got the official contract about two weeks ago, but for some reason I've been really hesitant to sign it. Ultimately, I know that I want to work in pediatrics. I've always worked with kids, my first degree led me to a career working with kids, and I knew that if I became a nurse I'd be a pediatric nurse. However, I had applied to MANY new graduate pediatric nursing positions to no avail, so I had started to accept that "any experience is better than no experience" and was excited about my cardiac stepdown offer. About a week or two ago I told myself that I was going to apply to any children's hospital positions that remotely appealed to me, and even if I got an offer in a city or state that I didn't have an interest in, I could work anywhere for 1-2 years to gain experience working with children. WELL, I just interviewed at a children's hospital that is a 222-bed, not-for-profit pediatric medical center, in a big city that I never thought of moving to. It is not magnet recognized, but it is working toward it, and I got 2 offers on two different units. SO, long long story short. Would it be better to accept an offer at a children's hospital working w/ a population that I am interested in, in a city I've never been to, and for a hospital that isn't magnet. OR would it be better to accept an offer at a university hospital working w/ an adult population, in a city that I've been to before, at a magnet hospital. I'd stay for 2 years at either location, but I just don't know if location/hospital is better than experience/patient population and I need HELP please. Thank you so so so so much in advance!! xoxoxo

    Mount Saint Mary's University - Summer 2020 - ABSN

    I got an email a few weeks ago requesting an interview to be set up, but then didn't hear anything back. I just got a VM today from Kat saying she had randomly missed 24 voicemails and a bunch of emails are going out/coming in, so she asked me to schedule an interview. Hopefully you guys hear something soon, too!

    Augusta University MSN CNL Fall 2020 Entry

    I called last week, same thing on my application. They said they're going through stuff this week and if it doesn't come off by tomorrow or friday then give them a call. It's just a matter of the SON and the office of admissions and the dean to all sign off on things, and sometimes it takes a while. We do not have to take the GRE if our GPA is higher than a 3.4 I believe (maybe 3.2?)
