I don't know where exactly I should be posting this so if this isn't the appropriate place I apologize.
Anyway, I have an interview Friday for a LPN position at an assisted living facility. I really want this position so I can gain experience seeing as the only patient care experience I have had do far has been from clinical.
However I am enrolled in a weekend/evening bridge program that I attend Tuesdays and Thursdays and every other weekend. Do you think that the scheduling issue will be a problem in getting hired? I don't want to seem so demanding while being a new hire with absolutely no experience but I know I have to be upfront about days and times I cannot work. I currently work 24 hrs a week as a monitor tech and I'd really like to stay at about the same hours per week.
I'm very nervous and I realize I am probably making a much bigger deal about this then it need to be lol

I'm sure you won't have a problem....more than anything they'll be happy to have someone that will become an RN soon...don't worry! Good luck!

Make sure you are clear on the "patient care" that is provided at that ALF. In many cases, it does not include much nursing care at all - because these types of facilities require residents to be pretty self sufficient.
