my first interview was with a nurse manager on a L&D. i knew this postion was looking and it a bad unit ..just got a nurse manager. But figured i could at least get some interview practice and see what they had to say. Well i hit it off with the nurse manager. But i had reservations on starting a job that i really didnt want and know how bad it run. But i had an appt with hr the next week, and we really hit it off!!! stayed like over an hour chit chattin=)
when i left i was given a paper for a drug test and some tax papers to fill out, while she hunted the nurse manager down for what shift were open.
well i got to thinking and sent her an email thanking her.how excited i wa sto start myjob at that hospital. but was taking to an aunt who is an rn and how she voiced her opion on me going to l&d and thought it wouldnt hurt to ask if there were med/surg openings? Well she wrote back no prob she would be able toget me a interview wih a nurse manager. so exicted but did i screw myself out of ajob?
also had a interview at a ccu in a diffrnent hospital. Went well and really loved the unit!!!!!!!! but pay succccccked! not union, med and dent taken out of pay and such a low starting pay. am i being to picky? a smaller community hosptila makes me nerovus too so feel union is helpful in this economy! adv?

Your medical and dental insurance premiums are going to be taken out of your check regardless of where you work.

1) Take the job you want. Money shouldn't be a huge issue. Are they not comparable in pay at least, +/- a couple dollars?
2) Take the job you want.
3) Union is nice, but realistically the protection they offer isn't as valuable to nursing as it is to other professions...with a shortage, nurses rarely get laid off! The benefits of Unionization are typically better staffing ratios..but in a CCU you shouldn't see more than 2:1 or 3:1 anyway.
4) Take the job you want. Be as picky as you want. You can move anywhere in the country and get a job, so you never have to settle for a job you don't want or won't like.
