    No, I didn't get it. Apparently, I was the first to interview for the OR position. I think one person liked me, but I could tell the other wasn't impressed with the small amount of PEDI we actually get.


    Oh well...my husband is already saying, "Since you're not working this summer...." I guess he knows I need a break.

    I still may try to get a part-time, or PRN tech job ....?????????

    At least you had an interview, maybe because I chose the inpatient units, instead of the OR or outpatient, I didn't get an interview. It might had also something to with, that we only were in our second semester. I will definitely try to get a job as a PCA somewhere this summer, I just don't think we get enough "hands on" in clinicals ,and I still feel so dumb and clumsy around the patients.

    I didn't know you applied for an extern position at Scottish Rite. I applied at Children's for an extern position in the PICU and I'm supposed to find out sometime in the next couple of weeks....I am soooooooooo nervous. They were supposed to decide by the end of March but now they pushed it to mid-April. I'm nervous because they hardly accept ADN students

    I tried to get one of two OR nurse extern positions.


    There are hired ADNs there, so I know Scottish Rite doesn't have a problem with ADN, but there were over 100 applicants for 14 positions overall.



    The lady in the people dept did tell me to put my application in as a PCT if I was interested, as soon as I finish the PEDI rotations. However, it is SOOOOO far to drive to do the same stuff I can do around where I live.

    I wanted the OR position because that is my ultimate dream...




    Don't give up hope Allison!!! Just like I told the lady in the People Dept when I called up there once....."No news is better than bad news." :spin: SO, keep a positive thought, and maybe....just maybe....

    Thank you Mi'Shelle I will get a PCT position somewhere if it doesn't work out. Wherever God leads me is where I'll go and I feel pretty confident He knows where I should go wherever that may be! Good luck to you finding a position that is best for you!

    I always think of things in those terms, too -- where will I be on that day? Dec 07 is not that far away!

    When I was in my last session of scrub tech training at El Centro, there were EC nursing students doing a paid externship in the hospital that summer.

    I was at Methodist and Parkland. Methodist has a very nice OR and the people are very friendly. They got to do lots of stuff.
