    Small hospital to big hospitals?

    Hello, I work at a very small speciality hospital in the ICU. It’s all I’ve ever known and my only job as a nurse that I’ve had. Lately I have interested in travel nursing. I had three phone interviews, all of which declined me through one agency. But I had one hospital auto offer me the job. The main reason the other hospitals declined me was because I said I did not have experience with Impellas, CRRT, induced hypothermia. I do have experience with open hearts, PA catheters, IABP and valvular procedures carotids etc etc . The fourth hospital auto offered me a day position job. I’ve worked nights most of my career but have worked on the dayshift a month and a half. The fourth hospital also does not have a trauma designation. But they do CRRT and probably do impellas as well. I signed the contract for the hospital but I am wondering if I’m trying to bite off more than I can chew? Should I just wait till I have more training and experience at a bigger hospital before I go and travel to a place like this? The recruiter said that hospital that hired me looked at my skills checklist, which I was honest about all of my skills and experience, and still wanted me, and said I should go ahead and accept the offer. I just wanted some advice. Should I back out?

    Thank you cristal! ! And I am pretty stressed out right now also about the cost of everything, I'm trying to save some money & and get everything I can ahead of time so I won't be overwhelmed. Btw, do you know of a good place to live? I'm transferring from community college and moving to Lubbock, and am looking for a good place.

    Texas Tech nursing program Summer and Fall 2018

    Are you applying to the traditional BSN program? I applied for Spring 2018 and was accepted for contingent admission (if i pass my last two classes) with a lower GPA and an 86 TEAS score. I have no volunteer hrs or healthcare experience. Your GPAs are great and so is the fact that you have so many volunteer hours. I think you'll definitely get an interview, but you just need to make sure that you stay calm, answer their questions honestly and just be yourself.

    It scares me that these things happen so frequently now

    Just stay positive!! I'm sure they're still making decisions about acceptances... I don't think very many people have been accepted so far. I heard they're taking 80 people but I'm not sure if that's true or not. I'm praying for you.

    It was nice meeting you Faith! I'm sure that you did great. I got stuck on one too, they asked me a few questions I didn't prepare for. But overall I think I did okay too. Did they tell you when they'd let us know about acceptances? My interviewers didn't know anything about it.

    I also have my interview for that day as well... I hope we all get in!! And landrethf wherever you went to college, there should be an unofficial transcript of all your grades online for you to see on the schools website with your GPA. But if you got an invite at least you know that you met the minimum requirements for your overall GPA and science GPA.
