I have found two jobs that I really like and I am waiting for some one to call me about them. I keep getting call backs about the jobs that I have applied for saying they don't take new grads. I may be forced to get a job that I don't want and be miserable. I did not make all these sacrifices to be miserable. I do not want to work med surg bc it is not my cup of tea. I have friends that love the speed and are really good at med surg but I did not like my med surg clinical. It was a wonderful learning experience but it was not what I wanted out of a career. I might have to start off there and then find another job after I get the experience. But I have been told people get trapped in that position. I don't want to sound selfish or rude I just want to find something that I am good at....
I am keeping my fingers crossed for one of the two position I really want and there is on in particular that I am really hoping for as my new career. So please pray for me and my family. I appreciate it.

I WILL pray you get what u want.  But I also will tell you, as a nurse for 12 years now:  If I could go back and do it over, I WOULD have worked M/S right out of school, for a year.  No you are NOT "trapped". Of course not, how can u be--you have freedom of choice!  You quit after a year or so, and apply elswhere. Your MS experience is looked upon VERY FAVORABLY.  YES it "sucks"  you run ur feet off, (I had to get those steroid shots in my heels after ayear or so, my feet burned so badly, and I only worked there PT).  BUT:   you can write ur ticket after doing MS.

  I went right in to an Inpt. Psych hosp, and while I "escaped" MS, it wasnt what I should have been doing then.  /  After that I moved to FL, and had to work in a Nursing Home b/c I DIDNT HAVE MS EXP.   I hope you just read that statement (!)     I tried to get back in to a Psych place here, but to this DAY they tell me I "Dont have enuf expereince" so my Psych time didnt mean squat, after all....anyway, I finally worked 2 yrs at NFRMC--first in "SNU" which is sort of N.H. stepdown, but then, I was thrust in to Ortho/MS after I came back from Maternity leave...I did that for a year straight.  Now I work for a state-run residential campus for the Mentally Retarded.

  anyway, please think about what I said.  And I DO wish u luck in getting what you want. (truly)
