Hi all, quick background on me..  I've worked in an emergency department at a very busy level 3 trauma center and cardiac intervention center for the past 5 years.  Recently, I accepted a job as an LPN at a more community-based emergency department.  I was just offered a job as a new grad RN at a hospital where I plan to relocate in an intermediate care unit.  

I was told by the nursing recruiter that I don't qualify for an ICU job or an Emergency Department job since I am a new grad.  My plan is to stay in critical care/emergency medicine, and I never thought I would ever think about doing anything other than this.  

I guess my question is, should I take what I can get as a new grad?  Or should I politely decline and keep searching?  

Thanks for the advice.
