I will be graduating in December and will hopefully take the NCLEX in January. Now that residency applications are opening I have no idea which department to apply to. Before starting nursing school I knew I wanted to work in pediatric hematology/oncology; however now that I have been on different units I absolutely fell in love with NICU and adult ED. I have been "pre-offered" positions in the NICU and ED and I have no idea which unit to choose. I am afraid that if I work in the NICU I would lose some of the basic skills that I would practice daily in the ED, because the NICU is so specialized. But even though I loved the ED I am afraid that I will burnout quickly like a lot of the nurses that I observed. And my heart is still in pediatric hem-onc. I was thinking I could work PRN in the ED and full time in the NICU or pediatric hem-onc. My question is which unit do you think is the best for a new grad based on my current options? Also, can new grads work PRN in the ED?
