Before classes ended, one of my teachers offered to give me a recommendation letter when I need it. (I graduated recently) But at the moment I'm still in the process of getting my NCLEX. My question is, should I contact my teacher so I have the letter in hand "just in case"? Or should I wait when I start applying for jobs?
I have been searching on various hospitals on job postings and I also bookmarked pages on nurse recruitment staff. I want to email them and ask questions like, if they have a current nurse residency program, or if they hire new grads, or other questions about unit preference if they do have nurse residency programs? And other general questions. My concern is would that seem very informal for me to email now, when in the future I plan to apply at that certain hospital?
