    I hope we were able to give you the answers you needed to help you prepare for the interview!
    Absolutely!! I am sooo thankful to you all. I went over and over the info you guys gave me, to the point where I was hardly even nervous when I arrived for the interview (and if you knew me IRL, you'd know that's an amazing feat! LOL I'm like the queen of nerves! ).
    I think I was very lucky, too, b/c my interviewer was very laid back and we sort of just chit-chatted, which made me so much more comfortable...
    Thanks again everyone!

    This is the way an interview SHOULD be IMHO. It should never be an interrogation of you by them. In reality you're both trying to see if it's a good fit so it should be a nice coversation back and forth, you answering questions for them and them addressing your concerns. These types of interviews almost always signal good news! It's the interrogations that usually lead to disappointment.

    Glad you got the job you wanted! OB is a great place to be.

    Thanks everyone, I will definitely keep you posted (I go in this week to do all the paperwork/pre-employment screening, but assuming that goes well, I start the hospital orientation/training on the 15th! I am so excited!!)

    RNmom6 - I am starting out on PP... I was asked in my interview if I would be okay with crosstraining in L&D and Nursery (which I was like heck yeah lol), so I am assuming sometime in the future I will be in L&D, too.
