I recently have accepted into CRNA school. So obviously my school is happy and thinks that my past ICU exp suffice. But I am wondering when I get out of school, would potential employers care more about my past experience as an RN anymore? The reason I am asking because I am miserable at my current FT job.
- GPA/BSN stats: Academically speaking, I look very good on paper so far.
-2013: 11 months of outpt Derm RN then ICU.
- 2014: 1 year of ICU in a super busy/ large teaching hospital for Coronary Care and Neuro ICU in big city. Then had to move back home to different state to support family in need.
- 2015 until now: 11 months in a general ICU. Magnet Status. But I hate it so much. This is the one I would like to quit ASAP.
- At the same time, I am doing per diem at a busy OpenHeart ICU to boost up my resume to school. And even though it's per diem, I got threw to all kind of pts because it's very high acuity. Impella, IABP, LVAD, Swans/Alines, CRRT are very common.
I want to keep my per diem job in the OpenHeart ICU and start doing travel nursing now for about 3-6 months before school. So I am still working in ICU regardless.
My main concern is: Does it look bad that I never stay in a place for more than a year? Regardless I have legitimate reasons to leave?
