Congratulations! Did you have your skills interview yet?
Thanks! I spoke w someone in HR, and the Skills Survey was something I had ALREADY completed. It was an online assessment of your judgement, basically questions asking what would you do in this particular situation, how effective would you rate this particular action, etc. The Nurse Manager did not realize I'd already completed it.
So, now...I am scheduled for orientation. My next area of focus: brushing up on pharmacology. (I haven't practiced in many moons). So I am looking into the NLN Basic Proficiency in Medication Administration test. i.e., being prepared to take such a test. Was told to bring calculator to Nursg Orientation, so I know what is coming.
Trying to cover all the bases! Tho I haven;t worked in ages, I have a solid resume and 6 yrs of med-surg plus 6 more in critical care. But I still feel like a newbie all over again, LOL.
If any readers can provide any insight as to typical drug/pharmacology types of questions, I'm all ears. I know, of course, to brush up on basics like Digoxin.
While I am re-starting in med-surg, I would like to tx back into critical care at some point. And I am kicking myself b/c I no longer have my tried and true formulas for calculating drips!
Nuttin' like starting over...
