I've just found out that there's an opening as Unit Secretary working from 3 - 11:30. I really need to get this job and it's one of the few decent jobs at night. It's the only way I'll be able to return to nursing school
I just need a few tips to be competetive. I can type 75 w.p.m., comfortable with computers, understand patient confidentiality is important, have some medical coding experience (although it was 12 years ago), have an undergrad Psych degree, and want to be in a hospital environment to be acclimated to nursing. I also have loyalty to this hospital since I've just had 2 children there in the last 2 years, and had positive experiences. I really appreciate the nurses. They make or break patient care, as far as I'm concerned.
What are the 5 main job functions of a Unit Secretary? How can I present myself? This is SO important to me. Any advice you wonderful people can give me would be appreciated.
