    Thank you!! I know I have to keep telling myself my first job might not be my dream job or what I pictured myself in. I really appreciate the advice ❤️

    Wow thank you so much. I never thought about it this way.. all of my friends are waiting around for things to get back to "normal" hoping to get a call back from the NYC hospitals Hi thank you so much for your reply. This makes me feel more at ease. I was thinking about getting my CT license but I might wait and see how I like working at this facility.

    Need some serious new grad advice

    Hello! I seriously would appreciate any insight or advice from any nurse out there. I graduated in May with my BSN and passed my NCLEX in June. This year has been absolutely wild.. I have not had a chance to relax. Job hunting has been extremely hard in New York. There is a huge hiring freeze and most of the hospitals have no money to fund a lot of new grads. There are 4 classmates of mine that have received RN positions so far. I received a position at a highly skilled nursing facility. It is long term care and I am on the unit with children who all have trachs, peg tubes, vents and severe medical diagnoses. I am so hesitant to start because it is not a hospital setting. I am afraid I will not get the experience I need to reach my goal of getting into a CV ICU or a step down unit.. heck I am afraid I wouldnt be able to get a med-surg position after a year of staying at this place. I feel like most hospitals want acute care experience. I have no other choice other than to wait but I really want to start to making money along with learning nursing skills. I feel like my parents, friends, and boyfriend do not understand my concerns and that if I do not take the job my parents would be disappointed. This long term facility offered me a tremendous salary, but is it worth taking? Will I be able to get a hospital job with this long term critical care experience? Please help 😞
