    Safe Job vs. Dream Job

    Thank you! No I did not apply, the position was offered to me by the manager at the end of my senior residency, which I was super excited about, but I wish I had more time to consider all of my options. I did volunteer one summer at the Children's Hospital, where I hope to work, so I was hoping I would have a better chance of getting a job there! Many of the hospitals that I have applied to, readily hire new grads and have residency programs, but I would not be able to start until after I passed the NCLEX. I know the smart choice is to take the step-down job, I just wish I would at least have an opportunity to interview with other jobs. Thanks so much for your input! Really appreciate it!

    Thank you Esme12! I did not think the first post went through, as I could not find it :) Thank you for input as well, there would be opportunity to transfer so that is a plus, it is just so much farther from family which is a concern for me, but I can muscle through if I have to! Thanks for your advice.

    Thank you for the input! I did ask if there was any possibility of starting later, but the next new grad orientation would not be until December!

    Safe Job vs. Dream Job

    Help! I am a BSN nursing student who will graduate in two weeks and I have a very big decision to make. I was offered a GN position on the step-down unit where I did my senior residency. I loved the people I worked with, but my dream is to be a pediatric or nursery nurse. The GN position would start one week after graduation, which is before I would even be able to interview for the pedi/nursery jobs I have applied to. I would have to sign an 18-month contract and repay any orientation costs if I leave before my contract is up. I have been going back and forth on whether I should accept the guaranteed job or take a risk, deny the offer and hope I get a job in the field of my choice. I hate to turn down such a great opportunity, but I also don't want to ruin any chances I may have of getting a pedi/nursery job, especially my dream job at my dream hospital (A nursery position at Children's Hospital of San Antonio via the Christus Santa Rosa Versant Residency Program) Any suggestions? Guaranteed job or unguaranteed dream job? Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank You in advance :)

    When I asked, they said no, you will have to call to find out.

    If y'all don't mind, what positions did everybody apply for? I applied for the nursery jobs at the Children's Hospital, which is my dream job and hospital, and I am going insane waiting to hear back from them!

    Safe Job vs. Dream Job

    Help! I am a BSN nursing student who will graduate in two weeks and I have a big decision to make. I have received a job offer on the step-down unit where I did my senior residency. I loved the people I worked with, but my dream is to a be a pediatric/nursery nurse. The problem is that my position on the step-down unit starts a week after graduation as a GN, which is before I will even get to interview for the pediatric/nursery positions I have applied for. Additionally, I will have to sign an 18 month contract at the step-down unit hospital. They are also in different cities. The job offer is in a small city where I went to school and the pedi/nursery jobs I have applied to are in San Antonio where my family currently lives. I've been going back and forth on taking the sure thing job and getting much needed experience or taking a risk that I will get a pedi/nursery job in San Antonio. I don't want to turn down a great opportunity, but at the same time I don't want to risk missing out on my dream job! Any suggestions?!?!
