    New Grad Programs - Do they not tell you what shift you work?

    Sounds crazy right? I accepted a residency and was told that I wouldn't know the shift till I started. They said it was most likely nights, but they're not sure yet because they're still hiring people and trying to get things in order. They did ask m...

    Congratulations! That's awesome! I applied months ago, received notification that I was eligible, but never heard from them again. โ˜น๏ธ The benefits are great! Good luck!

    I'm glad you say this, because MANY people believe that we don't have a "real" nurse job if it's not in the hospital.

    New Grad Fired From First RN Job After 90 Days

    Thanks for the info! I'm learning so much about residencies. So thankful for all of the info on this site from all of you who are already in the field. I would like to avoid a residency if possible, but we shall see. Thanks again!

    New Grad Fired From First RN Job After 90 Days

    I agree, but in my case, I would have to pay even if I fulfill the 2-year contract at the hospital. If I stay 1 year, 2 years, or 1 day, I have to pay.

    New Grad Fired From First RN Job After 90 Days

    Right?! It didn't matter if I stayed the whole 2 years or if I left prior, I was going to pay regardless. It sounds crazy to me to have to pay to get a job. Needless to say, I didn't accept it. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

    I Think I'm Done With Nursing

    I think I'm getting to this point too! The medical field is not what I thought it would be.

    I donโ€™t know what to do

    I totally agree with not being able to understand unless we're in those shoes! I'm a new nurse seeking my first job and I'm excited, but very anxious too. I've heard several nurses say that they feel drain and unmotivated when they get home. Honestly...

    Congratulations! That's awesome! I've also been considering retirement home or rehab just because there are a ton of job postings and I'm a new RN in need of a job. I don't know much about what it's like to work in these places though; that wou...

    New Grad Fired From First RN Job After 90 Days

    K. Everly, Thank you so much for the feedback! It just confirms some of the things that I had been questioning about this whole thing. They must have a high turnover! You have no idea how much appreciate you especially since I'm new at this. โ˜บ๏ธ...
  14. I'm a new RN and would love tips on searching for outpatient care positions. I learned early on that I didn't like bedside nursing for different reasons. It's so easy to find job posting for residencies and acute care jobs, but I'm having a hard time...
