A hospital I applied to asked me to provide references. They want 5 references, 3 of which have to be from managers (or teachers if new RN, which I am).
When I was doing my clinical in this hospital (same one I'm applying to), I stayed in touch with one of the nurses (charge nurse) on the unit. I'm going to put her as a reference, but since she's not a colleague, does she count as a manager? Or instructor?
also, since the hospital will send them a survey to rate my work, would it work best for me to:
1. Put charge nurse down as one of my 3 manager/teacher references, and then put 2 other RN friends who I know will give me 100% rating
2. Put 3 instructors down, then put the charge nurse, and only one friend who I know will for sure give me 100% rating
Any input will be appreciated!! Thank you guys
