Hey guys I’m a BSN student graduating this semester and I’m torn between job offers. I would like to end up as a critical care nurse at a well-known “great place to work” hospital. My job offers as of now include a med/surg general/neuro residency program at Piedmont and CCU at a smaller regional hospital near my college with no residency program.
I’m torn between a great work environment and support from Piedmont’s residency versus jumpstarting my career in critical care. I wouldn’t want to work at the smaller regional hospital that long because I want to move to a bigger/nicer city but I’m afraid a residency might look better for future jobs than jumpstarting critical care. I’ve heard a residency will make me a better nurse in the end. What is the best way to go?? HELPPP 😞
