hello all!i am a new LPN from new york- graduated late october and took/passed NCLEX december 17th.i had an interview at a LTC facility recently, and i have a pre-employment physical scheduled on new year's eve. i am confident i will be offered the position, as the HR manager told me "i don't want you interviewing anywhere else!"i do not know what the starting wage is - i will only ask when formally offered the job. i would be working 4 days on the 3-11 shift, but since this is a union job, i would still be considered full time and received benefits.my question is this: i was told i would be given 5 days of orientation, but that i could ask for more if i felt i needed it. i know how this goes, since i work as a resident aide in an assisted living facility. you are scheduled with a nurse for 5 days, and then scheduled by yourself. if you need more orientation, there is a big hassle trying to call nurses in. i don't want to start a new job on a bad note.i really feel, as a brand new nurse, i need more than 5 days of orientation. i feel it is responsible to tell the hiring manager this before i accept the job offer, that way the scheduling conflict can be avoided. i would like 2 weeks (10 days) of orientation instead of 5.do you feel this is an acceptable request? do you think they will honor it or have second thoughts of hiring me because of my request?thank you in advance.
