I went through school knowing I had a job on the med/surg unit I was an aide on. The available schedule didn't fit my needs, so I decided to take any position that fit my current scheduling need. I am happily employed at an ltc where the work may be hard, but they are very new grad friendly. Every shift, my DON checks in with me, and she is helping me to learn to be an effective UCN. I'm not there yet, but with time it will happen.
