i am looking for an urgent care facility now
Because many people report being sick from the flu shot. Im looking at the timing i got the flu shot from the timing i became sick. I'm not saying I got the shingles from the flu shot but I think it may have weakened my immune system to allow the shingles to appear. I've never had the Shingles prior to this. I'm 23 yrs old.
I'm a recent new graduate working on an orthopedics floors. My hospital just jumped on the bandwagon with the "get the flu shot or wear a mask" rule for the flu season. I decided to get the shot at my job because I got it last year and the only thing that bothered me was a sore arm. Well this time I got the shot and two days later I began to itch around the right side of my stomach towards the middle of my back intensely. I did not know what it was and attributed it to wearing a brand new tshirt for work that day. However as the next days progressed the itching became more and on one side of my abdomen/back. As I was showering today I noticed I had a cluster of itchy/painful red bumps on my lower back torso that radiates towards my umbilicus and by then I knew exactly what it was the freaking Shingles. I told my mom and she said a lady at her job called out after getting the flu shot because of the shingles. I'm scared to say anything because I don't have any sick days accumulated being a new nurse and I don't want to lose my job for being out but I have to work this week. I really don't know what to do and how should I handle this because right now I don't have any money to be able to seek care for treatments. I havent even gotten my first nurse check yet. And today which makes approximately one week since the shot my throat feels a tad scratchy and nose feel runny. I mean I know the CDC says muscle soreness is normal, but could other issues like mine be possible or are they just not reported by the CDC. This makes me never want to get the flu shot again. I was feeling fine before this.
I decided not to apply, just personal preference. Since im single with no kids or a mortgage, I dont want to sign a two year contract. The thought of a hospital requiring a two year contract with no incentives involved turns me off completely.
Is it okay to still call HR and ask how many they plan to hire/interview, when does the orientation start, is there a contract for committment
Great advice. Its crazy because i have clinicals this week and all next week. This call is quite surprising so im having to squeeze all this in between.
Im not backing out of the interview. It would be great if my friends joined me along the ride and would benefit financially. It is expensive to travel for an interview and not wise if the chances of getting the job are not likely. If push comes to sholve I will go there alone and interview.
Clearly if they called for the job I can afford to move there but I was told within one week to be somewhere 900 miles away. Also I dont want to waste money if their interviewing hundreds of applicants i'm not auditioning for American Idol.

Not the one I applied to PM me
The mere fact of a two year contract lingering over my head detours me away from a hospital. Especially into a career you know nothing about....some people start a career and after working realize that its not for them ......
Everyone offered great advice and input. Im going to call the Human Resources office tomorrow and ask them some questions in regards to how many they plan to hire, and do they offer phone interviews, I feel that a magnet hospital has the upperhand with applicants that they wouldnt see a strong need to hire a person who did a phone interview
Is anybody else looking to apply to Piedmont Hospital's RN Residency Program but unable to find the application posting? I received an email from them last week stating the application be posted on July 13th as "RN Residency Program." It also states on their website that they will be accepting applications from July 13-July 23. I don't know if I'm missing it on the job postings or if they just haven't posted it yet. Is anybody else having this same problem?
I applied for a new grad position at a hospital over 900 miles away from where I currently stay. I received a phone call from the HR office and they asked me if I could come in this Friday for an interview, I told them yes hesistantly. Thinking maybe some friends and I could drive and split expenses but everyone I spoke with either works or are not financially capable to assist me while on the drive. My question is would it be unprofessional to call them on Monday and ask for a phone interview explaining my circumstances financially. I did not think I would be asked to come in for an interview so abrupt because I applied a week and half ago for the position. Im really interested in the position as this is a magnet hospital in a metropolitan region across the country. I feel if I get the job that money can be used towards moving expenses but if I didnt get the job then all of that money to travel there would be a waste to my already tight budget.
I'm graduating in 3 weeks with a BSN from a univeristy in the Atlanta, Ga metropolitan region. I currently have a job offer at a hospital I work for here however, I strongly desire a change of scenery being that I lived here for 5 years now. I have been thinking about Houston, Texas for the last two years, but I have not visited as of yet. I applied for the new graduate program at St.Luke's about two weeks ago and received a call to come in for an interview next Friday. So, a few friends and I are planning a roadtrip to visit the city and for me to also do my interview next week. I have a few questions. What is Houston like? I know it is huge and spread out but does it have a nice, modern, urban appeal to it? I am a fan of crowds so I do not desire to live in a small town and prefer places that are more dense in population than Atlanta. I like shops, fashion, nice restaurants, and the welcoming atmosphere for singles looking to find a relationship. Pretty much give me your input about Houston, please. What is St.Luke's like for anyone that has worked there or been a patient. Is the technology up to date on the units? Are the new graduate programs beneficial for getting nurses prepared for the working world? Anything great and not so great would be helpful in pointing out for this hospital.
