Job Shadowing

  1. 0
    I'd really love to shadow a few nurses out there who are willing & able to do so. I live in the Phoenix area & can accomodate any shift or day of the week (I just may need to request time off work which isn't a problem)

    If you are interested or know of someone who may be please let me know

    Thanks!

    What is the purpose of shadowing? Are you thinking about going into nursing? Are you considering a certain specialty? I know that in my unit, there hasn't been anyone come in and shadow unless they are in nursing school. That is because of security reasons and HIPPPA.

    Agreed. I know this would not be acceptable on my unit. Maybe if you were an EMT thinking about going the nursing route.

    Yes, I am actually already applied to nursing school & just waiting to get in. I've spoke with numerous nurses & nursing students but just felt that being able to actually shadow someone would be beneficial as well. I understand there may be security reasons and HIPPPA restrictions but was hoping there may be someone her ein the Phoenix area that could accomodate it

    I know we wouldn't allow it at my hospital. Don't know how you'd get around the privacy stuff. Perhaps if you volunteer, it might get you into the hospital setting and at the bedside. Then you could ask the staff lots of questions. That is what I did before getting into NS. At least I got some bedside experience (how to make the bedrails go up and down, how to turn off call lights, etc.) which is all very real stuff that no one shows you

    Look at all these buzz kills.

    You can shadow me while I am saving lives at my SNF, get ready...it is WAY more exciting than Trauma, Life in the ER!

    HA!

    Maybe call you a volunteer or something if we have to.

    BTW I'm in Mesa, usually work 14:00-22:30 or 22:30-06:30

    Shoot me a PM.

    Well we can get consent from my patients and work you in as a volunteer.

    Now that being said I am not going to show you what I am charting or let you sneak a peek into someone's H&P nor give you the keys to the med cart but I don't see there being too much of a problem with observation.

    All this of course will need prior approval from the "big boss lady" but I do not forsee her denying the request.

    The nurse recruiters from county told us that they do a shadowing program if you are interested in nursing. You may want to contact them in the human resources office.
