    Hi,
    Anyone know the format for the Dysrhythmia pre-test? Just wondering, trying to make sure I am studying the right stuff? They only sent a math powerpoint to review for the math test right?

    I did too! I also can't start until April, though. The HR woman I spoke to said that they were having difficulties getting everyone's paperwork done by the 22nd. What floor will you be starting on? I was hired on 1C. I'm very excited!

    I'm curious how you guys that just started feel about the current strike?? I'm supposed to start in April, but I don't know if I feel comfortable getting into a situation where I would have to make that type of alliance (with management or fellow, senior nurses). Do you think it will all be resolved by April? What is the climate like?

    I know this is an old post, but I went in for my physical yesterday and we talked a little about the strike. I was told that the hospital proposed to do away with shift differentials and the nurses didn't agree (obviously). The hospital decided back in aug or sept to keep differentials but the union didn't want to strike until now because there were people in town they wanted to impress. This person told me this was the reason many nurses decided not to strike at all. Please know that this is second hand knowledge and by no means proven to be fact. Its just what I was told, so I thought I'd share.

    I have an interview on May 9th for the July residency program at WHC, where I'm applying for a job in either IMC, ED, or Oncology.

    I'd appreciate any feedback from RN's who were hired this Spring about their pros/cons about the unit where they're now working.

    Also, I notice that some people were presented with case studies during their interview. Can you expand on that? What kind of questions, what unit were you interviewing for? I'm trying to figure out what I should review clinically before the interview.

    Congrats to all who found jobs at WHC in this tough economy!

    How are you liking it? Sibley seems like a hospital with a close-knit staff. What swayed your decision? Just curious because I am having to decide between the two hospitals now. Thanks!
