I agree the PP's, I do not think it is frowned upon. I have been working in community health for the past 2.5 years and I am bored, so I just took a job in ED. Very excited to start! I think part of the reason you are seeing so many jobs requiring experience right now is d/t the economy. I looked for several months before I found something I wanted and got. When I graduated almost 4 years ago, the hospitals were begging you to work for them, with availability in almost any specialty/area. One of my favorite nursing instructors said the same thing as someone above, that moving around prevent burnout. I will never forget that advice. Unless of course you find your passion!
