Possible Job if I'm smart enough!

  1. 0 So I am a new grad LVN and I have an interview/filling out application appointment on Monday. It is the first opportunity that looks like it might actually work out. I also got another # of a company that a friend of mine gave me. This company is suppose to be just like the company I am applying for on Monday. My friend said that she put in a good word for me, but I am still very nervous. I have to take a LVN company test for both of these jobs before they even consider me for the job. I think I am so worked up because these are great opportunities and I don't want to loose my chance at a possible job as a LVN. Everywhere pretty much requires 6mo-1yr of working experience as an LVN before they will hire you so this is my chance to get the experience. My nerves are through the roof, I have felt constantly nauseated and my heart has also been racing :heartbeat for the past few days. I am going to have a conniption from all of this stress. I am studying like crazy hoping to find relief in that, but frankly it is just not helping. I just don't want to go in to the interview and have a stupid moment, you know those moments when the other person just gazes at you in disapprovement and disgust. I just need to take deep breaths, and if every thing falls to pieces then I can always keep trying. AHHH

    Well there is so much competition out there. It kinda makes me feel sometimes like the smartest nurse gets the job. Or the nurse with the most payed experience. I find this to be frustrating mostly because I have been turned down for so many jobs already just because I am a "new grad". What do you think? Do you think that the job market might loosen up a bit in the next coming months.

    I would say things probably won't loosen up in 6 months, but it would be nice if they would! Most of the companies I am familiar with don't compare how many questions you answered correctly to how many somebody else answered correctly. They only care if you pass it or fail it, with, for example, a cut-off point at 80%.

    If you could be a little more specific about what the job description is - I could tell you what general subject matter to study up on.

    I am going to be applying for a registry nurse position. I also just took a ACLS class and got certified before my interview on Mon. Any help with what to expect on the test would be fabulous.
