I am graduating soon, and am starting the process of signing on for a job with a hospital. I just received my credentialing packet and found out that I will be charged a fee of $150 for credentialing. Is this common? I have never heard of paying an employer for credentialing.
I was in a situation similar to yours. I worked in a large SICU for just over a year, then moved to a level I trauma ICU, where I worked for almost 2 years. I still saw some swans, CVVHD, etc., but not as often as in SICU. I am currently in school, so it didn't hurt me.
I think the important thing is that you got the knowledge foundation from the SICU.
I'm not planning to renew my CCRN. I've got enough to deal with just keeping up with school work.
I mostly got my CCRN to help me get into school, so now that I'm in I don't need it anymore.
I have worked in 2 ICU's, and both hired new grads (ADN or BSN). I definitely agree with biglum about not feeling adequately prepared with only one year of experience. I've been working in the ICU for 3 years, and am still amazed with how much I don't know. Good luck!
When did you hear from MSU? How did they tell you? Email? Call? Snail Mail? I'm dying here. I had an interview and I haven't heard anything back yet
I graduated from SVSU and use to work at Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc in the SICU. I currently work at the Mayo Clinic and got accepted to Saint Mary's University to start in 2008. I am waiting to hear if I was accepted at University of Minnesota. Anyway, it is good to hear from the Michigan people.:spin:
I'm from Michigan, I've just been lurking for about a year. I just got in at MSU (first class admitted), starting in January 2008.
How about you, have you started applying?
nurselizk, looks like we'll be classmates! I got the acceptance call from MSU yesterday. Congratulations!!!
