I had an interview w/St. A today. I was so nervous, but tried my best. I had come off a long shift a few hrs earlier so I was a little tired :(. I smacked my head a little later, thinking, darn, I wish I had answered some of the questions differently! I came away feeling I could have done so much better! Nonetheless, she did go into a lot of detail about the unit and how it worked, and said there is still a nursing shortage in that area today. I'll find out next week if I got it. Keeping my fingers crossed!!!

Oh, out of curiosity, which unit did you interview for? I'm heading into their PCU/Tele floor sometime next month.

And I'm sure you did fine!! They seemed friendly with me - mine was a skype interview as I am living in the UK at the moment. That was fun. Never done one of those before. To tell you how rough mine was, I couldn't remember a Lap Chole. To put it in my exact words, I said, "the one where you take out the gall bladder." No joke. I was so embarrassed. But hey, I got the job! Haha! I'm sure you did great, and don't sweat it!! They understand! At least I made them laugh. I'm a good nurse, I promise.

There is a major nursing shortage there. I've signed on for a 3 year contract, but I get permanent residency sponsorship. I'm British. I trained in the USA, but not a citizen. I have a friend who's American, she's from Texas and she's just got a contract up there and I've heard good things. Best of luck! Let us know how you did!
