Hi all! In the next couple of weeks I plan to start getting in contact with some hospitals I'm interested in working for after I graduate, and I've got some questions for you before I start calling.........
I'm wondering what is it that your hospitals look for in a new grad applying for a New Grad ER job? What kinds of things would make me the best candidate.
Would you suggest ACLS, PALS, ITLS, NRP, IV cert before I start looking, before hire or just wait? Other than courses, what else would set me apart to get hired?
Are bigger teaching facilities mostly marks based to weed through the applicants, or do they count other experience as well?
And lastly, When you see a new grad thrive in the ER, not fall flat on her face, what is it about them that helped their success?
Alot to ask, but hopefully some of you will be able to share experiences from your hospitals. Any other comments would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
