  1. Interview Questions

    I remember an interviewer asking me "Describe a typical day on the Med Surg unit". LOL.. I don't really remember what I said but I know it was a difficult question to answer for me because there was never a "typical" day. Every day was different and ...

  3. ICU interview

    Hi, I'm thinking about applying for an ICU position but I have been away from the bedside for almost two years. I worked for two years in Medical-Surgical. I'm not sure what type of interview questions to expect aside from the basic "tell me about yo...
  4. Break into CC

    Hi, thank you for your feedback. Argh, I really want to apply but I am terrified! I only have two years of MS and I have been away from the bedside for almost 2 yrs. What type of interview questions do you think they will ask? My lack of interview sk...
  5. FNP too soon?

    Thank you Thank you for your advice! I think I will work full time to get my experience and then switch it up to either part time or PRN to get FNP done faster. 🙂
  6. Break into CC

    I'm going to apply to PCU and ICU, and go from there. I guess there is only one way to find out:)
  7. Break into CC

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on what I need to do in order to return to the bedside and get into critical care. My last nursing position was in 2020 in the PCU. I was only there for 4 months to help with Covid patients. Anyway, I've...
  8. Back to the bedside

    I haven't applied to any acute care positions yet, I'm eliminating myself based on the position requirements or preference. I should try applying first
  9. FNP too soon?

    Hi, I've worked as an RN since 2011 in various areas such as triage, sub-acute, and acute care. I don't necessarily have 11 years of consecutive experience, but condensed, I have 5-6 years of solid nursing experience. Anyway, I'm in the FNP program r...
  10. AGNP Job Prospects

    I was told FNP is the way to go because it would be easier to find a position. I would think an FNP can work in the role of AGPC-NP, and this would saturate this area as well.
  11. References

    Hi, I've been away from bedside since Aug 2020, and I want to start applying for nursing positions, but I don't want to use my previous job as a reference. I've worked at my previous job from 2015-17 as a MS nurse and April 2020 to Aug 2020 (Temp pos...
  12. I am in the same situation. I have reached out to recruiters and agencies and they all told me to get at least 6 months to a year of floor nursing so that I can travel.
  13. Back to the bedside

    Yes, but I was told that employers don't really look at that. I will take it if helps. I might just do it while looking for a job.
  14. Am I too old for bedside nursing?

    Hi, I know this post is a bit old but I'm curious about your response of picking up a hospital job in the Spring/Summer. Do you mean contract position? PRN? I was told nurses need previous acute care experience in order to apply to these type of posi...
  15. Back to the bedside

    I'm going to start applying for acute care position in May (2022) and see what happens. I really don't count the four months I spent in PCU (2020). Technically, I've been off the floor since 2017. I worked in the Medical Surgical unit for 2 years (2...
