So I have an interview this monday for the medical telemetry unit and the HR person have told me that I need to bring my RN license and CPR card,but mine expired on July I think
The interview came unexpectedly and I always though that hospitals give you a certain time frame to get your things together (like last time when I interviewed for the same hospital they never mentioned to bring rn license or cpr card...I know it is a good sign to be asked to brings those two items since they are really serious about hiring someone but I just always thought that I will have some time between a job offer and the actuall start date to renew my certification...do you think that there is an oline course to get recertified in CPR in an express manner or should I just explain my situation and let them know I will renew my CPR right away...thank you...
My agency requires hands-on CPR classes. Even if an employee renews online they must attend the CPR class the agency provides for the hands-on demonstration. Given those regulations there is little point in spending the money. Especially for those of us in practice areas where we seldom use CPR, it's a good idea anyway to refresh our memories about the actual mechanics.
