Getting a Chance
- 0Dec 12, '12 by azilliRNI have been a Registered Nurse for three years. My career started out in Family Practice Clinic. Currently I am working on the SNF unit at a reputable hospital. However, I have been trying to get in to a specialty for the last few months. My main interests are the OR and PAC-U. I have had interviews for various positions only to be turned down. My hopes have been shattered. I feel like I am at a dead end job without any hope of getting out. I am very unhappy where I am and dread going into work. I felt I needed experience working the floor but would like a position in a specialty unit. This seems almost impossible to do and I feel trapped. What does it take to get into a specialty? Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated.
- 0Dec 12, '12 by azilliRNI wouldn't mind doing an unpaid internship. The trouble is, I don't know how to get my foot in the door. I don't know anyone who would allow me to do so. I've thought about going to HR for any suggestions. However, the only way I could probably get in would be if I knew someone who worked there. I will keep asking around. Thanks again for responding to my post.
