Hello all. I just got a phone call with a possible offer on telemetry working overnights (7pm-7am) This will be my first job working as a nurse EVER... let alone overnights! (Just got licensed in September) I am currently an EKG tech, and have been for 3 years, so I'm confident in reading arrhythmias.
I happened to pop in to the nurse manager's office a few weeks ago, and gave her my resume. She simply said "We don't hire LPN's. Have a nice day." I told her "I know, I just figured I would leave a copy of my resume, as I'm planning on bridging to RN soon. I would like to work on this floor when I bridge." I thanked her, and left.
She just frickin' called me and told me she's trying to get me on the floor. She's talking to the CNO tomorrow and will call me.
I CAN'T BELIEVE I MIGHT BE WORKING UP THERE.
Anyways, here's a few questions for you experienced nurses:
1) How did you adjust to working 7p-7a?
2) What should I brush up on before I start? (I'm brushing up on labs and code situations)
3) When will I not be scared crap-less?
