I have been working in a SNF/Rehab facility for 5 months now (ever since I graduated, first job as a RN), and I am now plugging away at applying to hospitals and clinics. I do not see this environment as one that I want to spend my nursing career in. Am I stuck or is there a chance that I can market my skills and move on? At this job I have gained experience with vents, trachs, blood draws, peg tubes, central lines, IV abx, plenty of medication administration, performing assessments, wound care, wound vacs, foleys, inputting orders, supervising cnas, team collaboration, hospice patients, dementia patients, patient deaths, hospital transfers, lots of patient/family education etc. I will be applying for an RN-BSN program for the upcoming year as well.
Any advice? Thank you!
