    Hi I totally feel you on that. Even with me loving the area I am going to be in and I loved my shadow experience within the OR. I'm starting to second guess it because I start my program on Monday and of all things stuff I completed when I first got my offer which was about a month in advance. Today going into the weekend before my start date oct 7th I'm getting emails that they are missing stuff from my chart like my PPD questionnaire, my mask fitting paperwork, and my compact license disclosure form which I explained because I am military this particular license better suit me. Then they screwed up my name on all documents and said none of my stuff matched up despite I sent them my drivers license, social security card, and nursing license which all contained my correct name. Between health trust and career builders who they use to do the background checks through they are all asking me for extra verification for stupid stuff I feel like they should be able to verify since they claim to be these pro investigators that can find whatever. I have gotten everything taken care of except one job needs to be verified for a pediatric clinic I worked for they are getting necessary paperwork I need to verify that I worked for the company. I really think they are very hard pressed about stuff that is so small. You would think I had lied about school or having a nurses license and didn't lol. Any who this whole paperwork and screening after screening only to have them screw my stuff up and now I'm having to run around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to get them all they need for Monday because if I am made to look like a nut when I show up on Monday I won't be a very happy camper. And I really don'y like the idea of being in a 2 year contract for a HCA hospital most don't have very good reviews if you look some up. Doctor's Hospital in Augusta GA happens to have some really good reviews but I'm still a little worried but no so much because I am Military and we are expected to have orders to PCS back to Florida to MacDill Air force base Tampa. Hope all goes well for you and definitely pay attention to what you are feeling after your shadow.

    I recently got selected for a StarRN apprenticeship for the OR here in Augusta GA. I only did one in person interview and it was the last and final day for interviews. I was assured after the interview that I pretty much had the spot. I was contacted the very next day with a verbal offer and then all the on boarding process began. I start my first day Monday Oct 7th. Hope you get some good news that you got in. What department did you apply for?@CierrahO
  3. StarRN Program HCA Doctor's Hospital OR surgical Services Augusta GA

    Hi hope all is well with everyone. I just wanted to get a few opinions to see if the way I'm planning on going into this new job opportunity merely for the experience was a good or bad idea? So I'm in Augusta GA and I recently just signed up for a StarRN program for the OR. I have heard from others about all the horrible experiences they have had with HCA facilities. I start my program next Monday Oct 7th. I just wan the experience in the OR because this one of the specialty areas you have to fight to get into or you have to know someone to get in so this opportunity is a hard one to pass up. Only reason I am doing so is because I am a military spouse and we will be PCS back to MacDill Air force base in Tampa June 2020 so I will have completed training and will only work two months technically under the contract. The facility is aware that I am military and also was made aware that I would be leaving in June 2020 but the recruiter and the HR director for Doctor's hospital in Augusta GA pointed out to me that their was a military clause in the contract that would release me from the contract free and clear if we got orders to return back to MacDill and we will have those orders without a doubt. So I am going to take advantage of this program and focus on finishing it. This would be great on my resume for sure. Oh one last thing they also told me about the many HCA hospitals that were scattered all across Florida so if I wanted to transfer I could do that also. I'll cross that bridge when the times comes because I really haven't heard very many good things about to many HCA hospitals. Do anyone think taking this position for the experience is wrong?
