    This may be a dumb question but here goes. I had an interview at an eye surgery center and am scheduled to go in next week to job shadow. I neglected to ask how I should dress for that. I went business casual for the interview but don't know if that's appropriate for shadowing. Anyone have any experience with this? I've been a floor nurse in postpartum for a LONG time so all this interviewing stuff is new to me! Thanks!

    hmm....I would think you should dress as you would if you were working in that role. If not scrubs, then certainly a lab coat over business casual attire would be appropriate I would think.

    I would cAll and ask if you should wear business cAsual or scrubs. Make sure to ask someone who actually knows the answer and isn't just guessing.

    I am not sure about the policy of the place you interviewed at but I work in an ambulatory surgery center that has multiple specialties including eyes. When I ask someone to come job shadow for a few hours to see expose them to what we do in a given day, they have to change into a pair of our scrubs that are professionally laundered. I would call because I'm pretty laid back and don't really care what they show up in as long as its not shorts and flip flops. Business casual is just fine.

    Thanks for all the advice. I finally did just call and ask. They told me I would change into scrubs there. Went yesterday for the morning and was offered the per diem position I'd hoped for! So excited to learn something new and start a new venture!
