New grad Nursing areas
- 0Apr 18, '13 by witness2012According to nurses out there, which kind of floor should a new grad nurse start with if one had a choice? cardiology, CCU , Rehab , palliative , Long term cares, ETC
Where would a LPN learn gradually?
Please share experiences .
- 0Apr 19, '13 by missnurse01I was an LPN first, I started on telemetry. But I wanted to work ER. I actually wrote a letter to the nurse manager after applying for an RN ER job and stated all kinds of stuff about being a hard worker, and how that was where my heart was, even though I was an LPN. It worked and I got the job. I think with fewer pt's on tele that you have more time to look things up and learn learn learn. There really isn't anywhere were you have the luxury of learning gradually. B/c of money, it is basically trial by fire until you can be on your own.

Where you want to be as a new grad and where you are in three years time are very different animals.
I do not think missnurse01 is in Canada, as no hospital will create a job for someone, as new positions have to be approved by management and the affected unions.
