    Which one should be chosen Private Nursing Home or a Government Hospital?

    I am about to start my career as a doctor. I have received job offer from a nursing home. I also got a job in government hospital. The salary offered to me in the concerned nursing home is much higher than what government will pay me.Which offer should I accept for my better future and better exposure?

    This is a common problem in modern world as there is a huge demand of efficient doctors and nurses.You should revise the details and norms of both the job offers and then decide.However,it is better to go for a Government Hospital because:-
    -You are starting your career.So for good exposure you should join government hospital.
    -Work pressure will be less compared to that of private hospital.
    -Job will be secure as you will not be chucked out in case of wrong treatment accidentally.
    -You can also work in outdoors in clinics and nursing homes for better earning.
    -You will enjoy the pension facilities in future.
    -You can enjoy other government facilities as well as holidays.
    However,if it is a nursing home of very good reputation and goodwill and is offering you a good sum of salary,then you can go for it in case you are having problem(like communication problem from family,etc.) in joining the government hospital.

    Hi aspirant

    As you told that you are just starting your career and this is your first job, I think you should join the government hospital . Although your starting salary might be less there, but if their are high growth opportunities then you should go for it as eventually with your hard work, you will get a promotion and a salary hike , and thus your salary will go higher automatically.There are many other benefits which you enjoy in the government hospital as opposed to a private hospital. As it is , it is very difficult to find a government job these days thus you are fortunate to have found such a good job in the beginning itself.

    The other benefits that you will enjoy in the government hospital will be the pension which will help you a lot in your later life. Also your job security and job satisfaction will be certainly higher.But if you instantly want a higher salary and are ready to jump from one job to another then you should go for the private job. So friend think carefully before taking a decision as it is about your future. Also you should consult your family and relatives for the same.

    I hope you have a bright future friend. All the best and Thanks
