I graduated with my BSN in nursing May of 2010. I was accepted to a post bacc program and was going to start the program after graduation, but decided to defer my acceptance for 1 year to earn money and to make absolute certain that I couldn't be happy as a nurse. I started in the ICU and did not like it! The politics, the non-supportive management, wanting to learn the in depth knowledge that the physicians knew, I despised everything about the job. I am now more certain than ever, that medicine is the field I want to go in. I really wanted to stick it out until May (that's when I will start the post bacc program) but I couldn't do it. I gave my manager my resignation letter this week, and now I'm a little worried at how this will look to ad comm's. I know this will be a red flag and make me seem indecisive. Is there anything I can do these next 4 months that will strengthen my application now that I have this red flag on it. I was thinking about starting volunteer projects, or begin getting research experience. What do you think? I know I made a mistake, but any advice would be greatly appreciated!
