So my first nursing job is at a rehab facility/nursing home and it's an hour away from where I live.. however the shifts are beautiful 12 hr/3 days a week I get decent pay but management is awful... pointing fingers, playing favorites, they actually lie to us at times.
I've been wanting to work at a hospital that is literally 5 min WALK away from me.. and I just got a phone interview with them.. they reviewed my application first and stated, you are looking for part-time and I corrected her and said, no full-time.. and she said would you consider part-time? and I said possibly...
After that I thought I would not get called back... however, I did and I have an interview next week face-to-face.
It's on a skilled nursing unit which I have experience in .. but the shifts are 8 hours only i'd maybe make 1-2 dollars more.. and it's a 5 min walk from my apartment as opposed to driving an hour to work everyday. I volunteer there so I know management and they are lovely... of course there will be some politics but not like the place I currently work.
However, I cannot do part-time! I thought they wouldn't call me back cause I said i'd POSSIBLY consider part-time... so maybe they would consider me full-time?
I don't know what to do it would be a shame to turn it down because that's my foot into the hospital.. I live in CHicago so to get an RN job in the city is nearly IMPOSSIBLE especially with an Associates...
Should I mention the fact that I really want full time ... and ask if she would consider me for full-time or would it be asking for too much and i'd never get an interview here again? I just have student loans and other bills to pay for and part-time will not cut it!
Sorry for the long post but I'm just looking for some advice amongst my peers
