I know that it isn't recommended to go into a specialty until after some years of experience has been obtained in med-surg but I am in desperate need of money! My old job where I worked as a Medical Assistant for quite some time has offered me a job with them as a dialysis nurse. Great right? Well not so much. Apparently I have to sign a contract for 3 years in working with them or otherwise pay a fine. Whilst dialysis may not seem very boring, that isn't so. Clients crash, have co-morbidities, and are aged anywhere from 18-80. I plan on doing med-surg in the future because eventually I want to work in critical care or the ED. I just wished I didn't feel so guilty about taking this job as my first one. Experience is still experience right? I've also had a hard time looking for a med-surg job because NYC isn't really new grad friendly.
