hey guys! i am currently going to school for my BSN. i currently work at my local hosptial as a patient transporter i have been at this job for almost 6 months, even though the job pays really good for the job and the hours work for me going to school i wish i could do more patient care and get even more hands on experience esspecially in critical care because when i graduate i would love to work in ICU or ER/Trauma. The position is for an MSICU/float NA part time.
Should I apply for this ICU NA or stay with the job i have?
WHat types of things does an NA do in the ICU?
WHat do you think my chances are of getting the job since i am going to school for nursing, have had 6 months of hospital expereince, BCLS certified, and have taken care of 2 sick grandparents who had cancer when they were in their last stages of life (i know i shouldnt bring that up in an interveiw because i have been told it doesnt really count as experience since it was family but i just wanted to throw that out there?
Are the supervisors flexiable at all with the days NA's work where you work?
