Soo I'm a third year student nurse and I have a job offer at Stepping Hill for a rotational post. I have spotted that the MRI are now also doing rotations and currently advertising for them. So now I'm wondering whether to apply for the MRI?
I chose stepping hill initially because their rotation included surgical, medical and community (6 months in each) which sounds awesome. The hospital gives off a friendly vibe and it was just convenient. The long days are 07:15-20:15 as opposed to 07:30-21:30(unless they've changed?) The 14 hour shifts put me off the MRI as 13 is bad enough, 14 is getting a bit ridiculous. I currently do 07:00-19:30 where I'm training.
However ... The factors leading me towards the MRI:
- more modern and specialist hospital (I have an interest in renal medicine which stepping hill don't offer)
- their rotations are advertised as medical or surgical (I am interested in medical).
So I could either stick with stepping hill and complete the rotation and have a well rounded NQN experience. Then either stay there or apply to a specialist ward at the MRI. Or I could apply to the MRI for their medical rotation?
I'm not overly familiar with either hospital as I currently live elsewhere, so I was wondering if anyone had any experience of either or both that they could share?!
What would you recommend?
