Hello, I worked one year on med surg then my family moved to and I took a job at an urgent care for the schedule for my child. I'm starting to worry it will be hard to get into a hospital in the future. Am I off base here? Any advice?

Yes, it will be, if it is here in California BUT, you can always become manager of the clinic or become a nursing instructor , school nurse or visiting nurse.

Don’t worry. There are opportunities with a shortage in nursing from retirees and pandemic. There are orientation programs that will meet your needs based on your current skill set.

I have a feeling hospital nursing will have a shortage for years to come after this pandemic.
