Pediatrics- school age/ortho/trauma: what to expect?

  1. 0 I just got called to interview for a CNA position at my local children's hospital (hooray!) for the "pediatrics - school age/ortho/trauma" unit. This hospital would be my dream hospital when I finish nursing school so this is a huge opportunity for me. I want to be prepared for my interview and am curious about what types of patients would be on this unit? THANKS!

    Just as it says... trauma and orthopedic. Fractures and orthopedic surgeries are likely as well as children who have had any kind of accident- bike, skateboard, rollerblading, falling down the stairs, etc.

    Is this, by chance, Levine Children's Hospital? If so, send me a message and I can give you the scoop. I'm a nurse on 10! It is WONDERFUL. Crazy busy, but I love it.

    I feel the interview went well. Peer interviews are always a bit awkward but I think I handled it well and answered the questions appropiately. I should find out late next week. My fingers are crossed...I think I would really enjoy working on that floor!

    I interviewed for the night shift so *maybe* I'll be working with you soon! A friend and classmate of mine works on the floor and he loves it. I know I would, too! FINGERS CROSSED! The wait for "the call" is always the hardest part. I was told I should hear something by Thursday or Friday at the latest.

    I'm starting to worry! I was told that if I was selected, my references would be contacted and I would hear by Thursday, Friday at the latest. As of now (Wed afternoon), none of my references have been contacted. I've been checking the website and my application status hasn't been changed to "not hired" so I'm trying to hold on to hope!

    I don't think he's said in huddle the last few days that they've hired so maybe they're still working on it. Have you heard anything more yet?
