I need some advice.
I live in an area where having nursing experience is key to getting an hospital job. We have 3 nursing schools in our area and needless to say, have way too many nurses.
I am crazy and fell in love with a NICU at one of our five hospitals during my senior practicum (120hrs spent in your specialty of choice) (oh, and yes, I am a new grad, without experience). At the moment that NICU is only hiring "on call" experienced nurses (I did apply), so I've been applying for every job at that hospital just to get in door.
My question is: Is it okay to walk onto the unit I am applying for and introduce myself to the nurse manager? Or is that stepping over the boundaries set between the nurse recruiter and the nurse manager?
I would really like to go in today, but I don't want to ruin my chances of getting the job.
