    CHOP 2020?

    Check what your status is on your profile online! I thought I didn't get the position bc they told me I would hear back in 2 weeks, when really I heard back after 2 MONTHS!! The HR department there is super slow so I wouldn't give up yet also... Did you guys order your scrubs yet? I know they have a size chart but I still fear buying the wrong size...if you ordered it already would you mind putting your height/weight and what size you got? I am 5'2 and about 110 lbs...debating between XS or S

    CHOP 2020?

    do you guys know if there is a certain time before we can internally transfer? Like is there a clause stating we have to be on the particular floor for at least _____ amount of years?

    I'm actually a very positive person naturally, but because I have become depressed, my thoughts have become more negative. I appreciate your input but I do not agree with you in terms of being a "bad co-worker." I'm a very nice person and I always try to help when I can. I suggest you read this article: https://www.theodysseyonline.com/difference-between-blunt-rude ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for defending me! I appreciate you more than you know ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, thank you so much for your advice!! Thank God I recently got offered 3 different positions so the search is over for me. I appreciate your comment so much it really made my day. I am definitely going to therapy once i start my new job (whichever i choose) bc if there's anything this experience taught me, it's that I need help

    I think a lot of my problem was not depression coming through, but anxiety. I get very awkward and my voice shakes SO much...recently i got 3 different job offers so I think my search is over! i just have to decide. Thank you so much for commenting I appreciate it a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you for letting me know about the resources! I will be sure to look further into it. I appreciate your comment so much thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for commenting! I actually just got offered another position I'm really excited about! They took awhile to get back to me, but I'm glad my hunt is over. I have 3 different offers and now I just have to decide which I was having such a hard time, but now all the sudden I found myself with 3 different offers! I'm very excited about them, and now i won't have to relocate if i don't want to ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you for commenting!
  10. I am so discouraged with this whole field. I'm starting to think I am just not cut out for this. I got a verbal offer for a CCU position at a local hospital, but they still have not reached out through email. I have been looking for a job for the past 4 months after quitting my first due to anxiety. I know this is getting religious, but at this point I'm thinking God just never wanted me to be a nurse. I've never been through so much rejection. I've seriously been rejected enough to fill at least 3 people's lifetimes. Over and over again I go through interviews just to never hear back. I've spent countless hours to commutes there, crying every day because I have no purpose in life. Are there people who simply cannot be nurses? I have never felt so discouraged. How did i make it through 4 years of nursing school? I can't help but feel like i'm being rejected over and over because this is not the right path for me. I'm only 22. I can still save myself...the thing is I want to be a nurse but I feel like nursing doesn't want me. I have never been so depressed in my life. I know I need therapy but I can't help myself without a job. Has anyone been through something similar? I feel like I wasted so much of my life on a job that does nothing but depress and upset me every day of life. Please help me.

    CHOP Video Interview

    Yeah same!! The recruiter told me In the beginning that theyโ€™re changing their system or something and that weโ€™ll hear back in 2 weeks. I think we have to do the references in the mean time though

    CHOP Video Interview

    Hey guys! I completed my video interview yesterday (11/19), and heard back today (11/20) that I am officially in the pool! Unfortunately idk how long it takes to get matched up with a position from a nurse manager but I'll let you guys know if I hear from anyone also, thank you @sampedsnurse so much for your guidance. i had very similar questions on my interview ๐Ÿ™‚ it won't let me quote you for some reason haha!

    Am I too stupid to be a nurse?

    Hi, I am a very new nurse and quit my last and first job after 2 months due to EXTREME ANXIETY. I know it sounds rash, but I don't even regret it. I was unbelieveably miserable...it's now hard for me to want to try again. I feel like at my last job, all these nurses could multitask like no other and were very detail oriented. The new nurses with me did not have a hard time like me, which leads me to believe I may not be suited for this job. It's like my brain can't process/handle dealing with so much at once. I don't want to put patients in danger, so I'm just really scared to try again. idk why it seems so much harder for me than other people in my cohort. I get very anxious and nervous in fast-paced environments, which is why I think I may not be a good fit for nursing in general. I know people are gonna tell me it's bc I'm new, but compared to my peers throughout nursing school and my last job, I was always significantly slower... Any advice is appreciated. Do you think I should switch careers?

    Hi, I just got an email stating that I was moved to the next step of the video interview for the residency program. I was just wondering if i can record my answer more than once or if it just starts recording? Thanks!
