I have an interview coming up for the PAR unit. I do have some ICU background but have never worked in PAR. What are some questions that I should ask the manager during the interview?
Also If any PAR RN's would like to share what a typical shift looks like and commonly used meds etc... that would be so helpful!
Also, when I spoke with them briefly, the manager said I would get only 3 weeks of training. Is this adequate?
This particular PAR does Orthos, Pediatrics (as young as under 6 months old), GYN, Bowel, some Neuro, ENT, Urology, emergency trauma.
They do not do any vascular surgeries, thoracic, or open heart.
They seem to think 2 weeks is adequate for on the job training. I have absolutely no experience with PAR and no experience with pediatrics!
Because I have no experience with PAR, it is hard for me to comprehend what is an adequate amount of training. When I trained to ICU, I had almost 12 weeks of orientation.
