I graduated from an ADN program on June 4th, took the NCLEX on June 9th and finally got my license last week (took them forever to do my background check). I had been applying for jobs for several months now. Mostly in hospitals on the coast and in Portland. We want to move back to Portland soon.
Last week I kind of gave up all hope for a med/surg hospital position but have continued to apply and also adding to my list LTC facilities.
Today, I finally got a long awaited call for a potential job. It is at a LTC facility east of Portland. Only weekends, hoping that maybe I could pick up some extra hours or if I work there long enough more hours become available. If I even get the job.
Anyways, I was wondering if some of you veterans can give me some tips or information on what to expect during the interview. This wouldn't be my first job in health care. I have worked as a medical assistant for around 7 years before going to nursing school, and spent a short time working in a retirement home as a caregiver. So I am a little familiar with the sick and elderly. Just wanting to know what I should expect during the interview process for an RN!!!
