I just graduated with a dual AGACNP/FNP a few months ago and job hunting has been zero fun!! I did not enjoy family med and want to avoid that area of medicine completely but it seems like those are the only jobs available!! Everywhere that is acute care or hospital based wants 2-5 years of experience. I’ve had a couple interviews only to be lead on and the job ultimately given to “someone with more experience”. I live in Seattle but applying all over WA, OR, ID and northern Nevada. Where are the acute care jobs?? I just don’t want to be in a clinic full time. I wouldn’t mind something that did clinic, hospital rounding, and OR time! Dream job! but alas... I have no experience. Did anyone start out in family med or some other clinic (renal/GI seems to be in demand) and then transition to the hospital after a couple years? How are new grads getting acute care jobs these days??If I were to start out in the clinics would it Be better to do family med or a speciality (like renal/GI/wound care) If I plan I transitioning to the acute care setting ASAP? Any other new grads having the same issue?
