I've been an RN at the same SNF/LTC for 8 years, so I am pretty much out of the loop regarding interview protocol these days. I am relocating to a new state, and I am kind of nervous about finding a new job...and the whole interview process.
A few questions:
1. Do most facilities want a resume, or is it more common to fill out an application? (either in person or online)
2. What about letters of reference? Still used, or is it acceptable to just give names and phone numbers for references?
3. I don't have 3 work references, since I have been at my job for so long. A problem...or not?
I am also kind of nervous because I am in my early 50's. How big a factor do you think that will be in terms of finding a new job in a SNF/LTC setting?
I appreciate any feedback/advice anyone can give...thanks.
