Is it a good idea for job-seeking nurses to call unit managers directly to ask for a job? Or show up on the unit they want to work at, resume in hand? I guess you have nothing to lose -- the worst they can tell you is "no, we're not interested." And some nurses have reported getting jobs that way. Or maybe they will put you on the "do not hire" list for being a pain in the ###.
What do you say? Any nurse managers want to weigh in -- would you welcome such a call (or visit)?
