Hi Nursing community!
I am a new grad RN, searching for my first job. I have received two solid offers one in LTC and the other Private Duty. I have worked LTC as a CNA while finishing prerequisites for nursing school so I am familiar with the environment, but I’ve been out of the field nearly 5 years, therefore, I’m extremely anxious about the patient load, veteran nurses, gossip, etc. I was shocked to get an offer from the Private Duty Agency especially without any experience and I’m intrigued by having just 1 patient for 12 hours. My ultimate goal is in the Geriatric field as well as Hospice or Palliative care. My question is what job should I accept? Have any of you gone straight into Private Duty and loved/hated it? Should I gain more experience first?? Is this agency setting me up for failure????
