I've been a long time lurker around AN. Finally gathered up courage to write my first post on this site.
I would like some advice regarding a matter.
I graduated back in summer of 2010. There was a hiring freeze. So almost after a year I started my first RN job (part-time) at a community hospital in my town. I have been here for 7 months and it has been pretty good experience. I work on a medicine and telemetry floor. Also, I'm being trained for new three bed room we are opening on our unit. That room will have pt who need more close monitoring but who do not require CCU/ ICU type of care (I hope this makes sense). Furthermore, they are replacing 7 full times RN with RPN. Although, part timers are not being laid off on this floor. Due to seniority I may be bummed to another floor. So there are a lot of changes going on this floor. So, I started to apply for job and was invited for an interview at a teaching hospital. The only problem is I need three references. So far I have two. One reference is from my clinical instructor and the other one from previous job manager (non- nursing job). For the last one should I ask my NM? I believe I need her reference since this is my first and only Job as RN. I'm not sure if I should approach her or not. Also, I'm nervous of her reaction. What if I approach her and later I find out I don't get the job. She will know I'm looking for another job. Have you guys been in similar situation? If so how did you guys approach this situation?
Please and Thank You for your comments
