I am looking for some advice from all you nurses out there! I am set up to job shadow in a CCU "with the potential for an interview". I am curious if the term job shadow is just a way for the nurses to see how smart I am and if I would fit in with the department or not? Or is this just a nice way to allowing me to see the department, but really they aren't interested. I sent over my resume and sent in a job application, however I only have 1 year of telemetry experience as an RN, one as a nurse extern. So I am curious if this is the normal process for all ICUs if you have no experience? I really want this job, and aspire to get my CCRN, how can I impress my potential employer? I am planning on brushing up on all my basic cardiac info, swan ganz, meds, etc before going so I am able to ask and answer intelligent questions. Any advice? Thanks!
