I applied for the position of Apheresis nurse, when I saw the ad in the weekend newspaper. It's with the American Red Cross. Yesterday they called me and scheduled a phone interview for today. Well, I had the phone interview this morning, this was my very first phone interview, ever. And I'm 54. It was interesting and I think I did well. I have a second interview tomorrow with the Red Cross at 11 am. This will be a person to person interview, this time.
The position sounds so exciting! I would have one month of paid classroom training, then two months of training with a perceptor. I would earn $19.27 an hour, with great benefits! The classroom training will be from 8 to 5 Mon to Friday, weekends off. :studyowl:
This would be such a great change for me. I have worked in long term care for along time, it would be great to have a new challenge and opportunity to learn. Plus I feel I can really make a difference in helping to save lives.
I love long term care, but I always know someday I will lose another wonderful resident, because of the nature of my job. I am really hoping I get this job with the Red Cross.
