I just found out my hospital takes all CNAs, PCAs, CSTs etc off the schedule when they pass their boards. I never thought about this until some coworkers were taken off the schedule in July. Fortunately everyone was offered a RN position.
My question is. Is this normal? What did you do for work until you were hired? I am a Surgical Technologist the last tech to become a nurse was able to work as a scrub nurse until her RN orientation started. This isn't the case anymore.
It motivates me to work hard to find a job my last semester, but also I'm concerned about paying my mortgage.
