NEW NURSING GRAD NEEDS SOME ADVICE ON EMPLOYMENT
I am graduating in December and I am starting to look at what jobs are available. I have a 3.6 GPA and have 36 hours towards my bachelors, which I plan on finishing while working. Ultimately I am looking to be a anesthetist so I want to go straight to ICU from school. I live in Houston and would consider relocating in if it made since to do so but given the large medical center here I am hoping to find something. What salary should I expect along with benefits etc. I have an offer in Phoenix, AZ for 23.00 an hour + benefits. A little help from the established nurses would be greatly appreciated!
I am not a nurse, but I know the job market very well. For Phoenix, that is pretty good. You should jump on it. Once you have more experience, you can command more money...for now you have a great opportunity.
