Hi everyone, I know some of you would find it weird or raise their eyebrows about a NICU (neonatal) nurse taking an ER position. But yes, I just accepted a part time NICU position, and also accepted an ER position after a month.
A little bit about me, I'm a NICU nurse from Philippines with 1year experience and just got my license here in Canada last November. I recently got a job for a part time position in NICU, and still in the beginning of my preceptor shift. I applied to all nursing positions available here in my place, even ICU and ER positions. Also, I took Cardiology Nursing 1 and 2, and ACLS. So credential and theory wise, I'm qualified for ICU/ER jobs.
My question is, do you think it's possible to handle 2 part time positions in entirely different specialty areas at the same time? Does anybody had/have the same situation as mine? I'm kinda overwhelmed because I feel like a new grad again. And the set up here in Canada is different of course so I'm still adjusting in a way. Nevertheless, I'm very thankful to be hired for these positions.
