I've been in L&D for a few years and have an interview in mid Sept for a private office job.
In my current hospital they do a week of OR training (for c-sections) after nurses have been there awhile and I'm next on the list to get trained.
I would LIKE to be trained to get the experience and make myself more marketable if I ever want to go back to L&D somewhere else or an OR job.
But with this interview coming up I'd resigned myself to the fact that it might just not happen.
Then I heard they are thinking about training me in Sept. Eek! Bad timing. I'm obviously not going to turn it down NOW because I don't know if I got the office job or want the job.
But what if I get a job offer and am ready to put in my notice, right before getting OR trained, or in the middle of it, or right after?
They might be annoyed if I get OR trained and then peace out a few weeks later. Like I wasted their time or something.
Although I plan to stay per diem so I can still do OR then, which would be helpful for them.
I guess I'll play it by ear and see how the timing works out....
If the job offer comes before OR training starts, maybe I'll talk to my manager and when I give my notice say I'm happy to still do the OR training because I plan to stay per diem, but if they don't want to train me anymore, I'll understand?
If it comes after.... I guess I'll just say I'm sorry, I didn't plan it like this since I didn't know if/when I'd get the other job....
Of course this could all be a moot point if they don't train me in Sept anyway. Or if I don't get the office job...
