    Where did you go to NS?

    Do you live in a rural area or city (wondering why it took so long to get a job with the "nursing shortage"!!)

    Is the hospital offering orientation/training?

    Best wishes.

    I am in shelby county..went to school at Central Alabama in Childersburg. I graduated in December and took boards the beginning of February. I will be working at Brookwood in Birmingham, in an 8 bed MICU. I think it took longer for me personally because i was stubborn. I really wanted ICU, really at this hospital, and although i applied else where and interviewed elsewhere i was not very enthusiastic about it. I got the call to go into this interview, and reaaly gave it my all because it is what i really want. I will do 6 weeks orientation on days, then 6 weeks (at least) on nights.

    Wow! You go girl, I've heard nothing but great things about Brookwood Hospital, even down to the doctors! I hope it's all the same in your case. May you have a wonderful and most blessed nursing career.

    I've worked at BW for 3 years as a tech, great hospital. Just wait till you meet Dr. Gomez he may make you feel a little bit stupid sometimes.
