I asked about their rehabilitation rate in my interview and from their stats only 10% reoffend. So the program does a good job and has been there for years. My job itself wouldn't be threatened, they have excellent funding (I would only stay about a year anyways). The boys have to qualify to be in the program (it's not just for anyone).
After discussing this all with my husband I have again decided to take the job. I've been canceled my last 2 out of 3 shifts in the PICU and this has been going on for the last 4 months and I couldn't pay my student loan this month---have you all had any problem with your hospital census being low lately??? Anyways, I've decided to go ahead and take it for a year and then do something else (I don't think this is something I would want to do long term honestly but I also want the HELL out of the hospital).
Thanks for the input though!
As for being cancelled. I've been out on maternity leave for almost 12 weeks now, but my unit has been exceedingly slow. We have all the scheduled surgery patients and trauma/burns overflow. Since it's not "trauma season" and our scheduled surgeries are down due to the economy, many people are getting cancelled. I think it's over now, though, as I know our overflow unit was open last week.
