I had a last minute interview today and everything was going well, untill the last question.
"Would I be be confident enought to handle 49 residents by myself". and my dumb response was; I am confident enough to handle 49 residents by myself but I would be more comfortable if I had another nurse working with me because that is a heavy work load and you run the risk of having a potential medication era and not being able to chart properly on all my residents. After my response she ended the interview. I messed up big time, i was thinking about the safey of the residents not me getting the job. She said i would hear from her, and she didnt shake my hand goodbye.
