I did it!!

  1. I made myself apply for a job in the Opthamology clinic...wow! After 10 years of general med, it would be quite a change.Its part time and maybe I won't get it...but I at least applied. Now I'm frantic about the interview...I know NOTHING about opthamology or ambulatory care!LOL

    Congratulations on taking the step by applying and good luck. I hope, if this is the job for you, that you get it. Relax for the interview. You've been nursing for 10 years, you will do fine.

    Good luck. Ten years of gen. med. is awesome experience that will be in your favor!

    Goodluck on the interview-but do a little research and refreshing in opthalmology. They won't expect you to be a know it all but if ya can't answer basics it might be interpreted that you really aren't interested(blanket resumes), or that you aren't knowledgeble enough. A little effort can go a long way. Then be confident you passed boards and have been a nurse in one of the hardet areas to work for ten years.You can do it!

    Just my thoughts, but learning to spell "ophthalmology' might be a very good start.

    Oh don't worry....just because we are nurses doesn't mean we have to spell every single word correctly especially in our down time...do it where it counts and I for one, have been a great speller and I make mistakes on the boards....some people just like to bring others down...anyway they can. Good luck with your opportunity for change.
