Hello. I am international nurse who have 2years icu career in korea and i am planning to jump to US and i got my agency.
Because of my personal issue, i transferred my hospital to small hospital. And My agency recommend me to find a job from ER and they said it would be much better career when i am finding my position in US.
Here now i am working is 80bed hospital which mainly dealing with orthopedic patients.
I just started work in ER but it's too small. Only3 bed we have and cases are too limited. Most of cases are simple fracture, AGE, drunken people.... no big trauma case or medical case.. no stab wound or gun shot cases. Sometimes i am reading EKG, or doing laboratory test but no severe cases. Maybe it can be regarded as level 3 or level 4 Trauma center.
I wanna work in ICU but there are no icu nurse position in my town. So i am thinking which one is better. Staying small ER or transfer to med/surg unit in my hospital. It is med/surg unit but most cases are about orthopedic cases.
I need your advices that which part is better for my career after I jump to United state and when I am finding job. what I concerning primary is which unit , ER that I am working or med/surg, is better to get a job in US hospital.
To be honest i wanna work in ICU after jump to US, but i think it would be difficult to find a ICU job without any US career..
I need your help
