Hello, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on approaching the director of an ICU about hiring me as a NEW GRAD. I did a CAPSTONE on this floor and know a lot of the nurses that will give me a great reference, which showed them that I was more than capable of becoming a ICU nurse...eventually with some orientation. Above all, I showed them that I had the capability by putting in a 110% during the shift and there after. The department had a special meeting about possibly hiring a NEW GRAD into the unit, and now I think it is my time to contact the director and let them know that I am interested in a job. Just asking for some advice on my approach, I know some people think it is not good to get hired into a specialty area right out of school, but to the nurses that did please respond. Thanks.
