I will try to keep this breif. I graduated in May 2011, and passed my nclex that July. During my entire time in school clinicals I kept thinking "I wonder when I'm going to have a clinical that I really enjoy". At that point I had worked much too long and hard to just quit. I didn't despise my hospital clinicals, but I didn't really like any of them either. I was very interested in all of the courses and the content (I even won an award for clinical excellence for my pediatric rotation).
My dilemma is this: I have gone on two interviews (both at extended care facilities, which is a field I have NO interest in working). Needless to say, I did not get hired for either job. After that I kind of stopped looking for places that were hiring. I am 99% sure that I have and will have no interest working in a hospital. I am currently looking into getting an interview with a company that does preventive services for corporations (things like immunizations, cholesterol checks, etc) and that seems like something that I would be into. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for areas of work that I could use my license that wouldn't be in a hospital. Is it extremely difficult to get a job in an area like physical rehab? How about even a general practitioners office? I feel like I just wasted a lot of time and money and now am out of options.
