so. i have applied to every hospital, and nursing home in nyc multiple times....i have been out of school for over a year now. i need a job because evry day i go without one decrees my chances of ever getting one as an rn (i need to get some sort of experience as opposed to no experience at all). i really would love a hospital job but that hasnt come my way yet ( hospitals keep choosing the experienced rn over the new grad for bottom line reasons). i havent even been able to land a ltc job.
soooooooo ....i went to americare css today and what do you know...looks like i have a chance of getting hired...... looks like they are considering me for a case management position (they may have one available home care rn position but i got the feeling they prefered me for case management which i got the impression does not really require feild work).
sooo i guess my questions are...is it a good idea for a new grad to take on a case manager position? does anyone know how long the orientation is for a case manager at americare? does anyone work as a case manager for americare that would like to give me a first hand account of what the job is like? what are the hours like? what is the salary like? what are the working atmosphere like? can i expect to get out on time or dont even bother to dream about that?
any and all feedback is welcome.
What! What's up with that! What time did you go,I went and signed in at around 2 and from the looks of it, it looked like I was the last one because I left at 4 and the open house ends at 6.
And which facility did you go to, the one in Brooklyn?
The director loved me, and took my references and everything and told me which position I was going to be in and what not. I didn't get a good indication regarding orientation, I just remember that it's every 2 months and he put my app in the will file box.
Who did you have for the interview? And how did it go?
