I recently graduated (8/02) and started working in a tele unit; well...I really, really wan to transfer to the ER. I can apply for transfer in February and I've signed up for ACLS & TNCC in January in an effort to increase my chances of getting hired in the ER.
Here's the problem...where I work when someone applies for a transfer they send a copy to your nurse manager and he/she
has to release you in order for you to be able to transfer. I've heard from several co-workers that she won't do it. I know several people that have tried to transfer to other departments
and the NM would not release them even though they were well qualified and there were openings
I really like the hospital and do not want to work anywhere else,
but I do not want to work on that floor anymore.
