    ob/gyn or neuro

    As a follow up to my previous post about job opportunities for this new grad, I had an additional question. I really appreciate the responses to my last post. I'm now looking at choosing among the following three options all at the same hospital. NeuroScience -- post op Med/Surg OB/GYN -- post op Any opinions at what department would be best? I know a lot of it comes down to personal preference; however, all three are interesting to me. Also, about signing bonuses--the hospital offers smallish bonuses for commitments of 18 months, 2 years, and 3 years. In general, what's the feelings on these... Thanks again for any feedback.

    Advice on job offers?

    I also thought case management would need more clinical experience, but was assured I'd get the appropriate training/'hand-holding'. The foster care we did, we worked closely with the treatment team for each child, so although it wasn't in a nurses role. I feel pretty confident I have a good base of hands-on experience dealing with many of the same issues that this clinic works with. Thanks for your feedback.

    Advice on job offers?

    My previous experience consists of -working as a Licensed Massage Therapist with chiropractors. -several years of structured foster care with health challenged children, ie autism, etc. -retail manager I have a 4 month old baby, (yeah, this last year of school was hectic. I just barely passed one class by a single point--I though for sure I was going to need to retake the class) so the work hours are important. Luckily, my husband works from home and has flexible hours.

    Advice on job offers?

    I'm graduating with my BSN soon and have a few pending job offers. I'm having trouble figuring out what area of nursing I want to focus on. I've enjoyed all my clinicals. Any advice and pro/cons of the following choices would be appreciated. So far, my options are 1) Case management at a pediatric clinic. 75% paperwork--medicare/private insurance, etc. Not sure what kind of career track this would lead to. I like the steady hours I like the idea of getting in to admin/management. Just not sure if I'd get enough clinical experience. 2) Float nurse at Large Clinic. Not sure how this would compare to hospital experience. Better/Worse? Was told I'd pretty much have my choice of departments w/in the clinic with in a year if I didn't want to stay floating. steady hours also 3) Med/Surg at local hospital. 3 month training program. It's a small hospital 5 minute drive from home Most people say Med/Surg for a year is good place to start probably least favorite 'job', but I'm looking at total career. Any experience/advice for this new grad?
