I'm a nursing student who was lucky enough to find a position in a hospital. This morning I interviewed and was offered the position. I'm excited because they will pay for school, insurance, vacation, pto, etc.
I'm wondering what they do exactly? I'm familiar with various roles in the hospital but I've never heard of a hospital attendant.
The interviewer asked me if I would be okay taking bodies to the morgue. She also said I would be required to respond to every code. I can't figure out why I would be needed for codes.
My goal is to learn a lot. Will this position give me some perspective on nursing as a career?
Is it similar to a nurse's aid?
Could anyone offer any information?
