I had an interview today and asked the nurse manager if I could shadow as part of the interview process. She said sure and imagine my surprise when she asked me if I could come in tomorrow at 7 am! I am exhausted from a full day of interviewing and a week of finals, graduation, parents visiting, etc. I am still trying to prepare myself for tomorrow.
Can anyone give me some specific advice about shadowing on a unit where you want to work? I have a good idea of the questions I want to ask, but any additional ideas would be appreciated. Also, what's customary for a shadowing nurse to do on your unit? Things that shadowing nurses do that bug you? Stuff like that. I asked the NM if there was anything special I should do and she just said to show up in some scrubs!
I am so excited!
