Nurse Beth specializes in Med Surg, Tele, ICU, Ortho.
Dear Nurse Beth, I have been a Cardiothoracic Surgery Stepdown Nurse for almost 2 years now. My hospital is currently restructuring and eliminating the Stepdown phase of care. Because of this change, I am currently looking for new positions in the CTICU. I recently interviewed for a CTICU position and the nurse manager seemed to be very critical of my work experience and my knowledge of the field. He asked me if I started drips on my floor and if so what are the side effects of Neo and Amnio? It completely caught me off guard because I had walked in ready to talk about my work experience. I just wanted to inquire about how often nursing managers ask clinical and medication questions during interviews.
