Great point.........An ideal answer to the "how do you see yourself in blank years" question, is, especially in nicu ... "I would like to concentrate on obtaining a solid foundation in nicu , learn all I can and perfect the skills needed here". i believe a manager wants to believe that the nurse she is thinking about hiring will always be in the position she is hiring for... I know she doesnt really believe that will always happen,and obviously it doesnt.... but ya know what I mean.......another good goal to tell about would be NICU certification.... shows your motivated, but not neccesarily thinking about leaving a position where you really need alot of time put in to be truly "seasoned", right off the jump.
Makes perfect sense to me! I think your answer to that question is a great one. I will make a note of it.
Also, would you mind explaining about NICU cert? How does this work and exactly what is involved. I will come into the NICU with my critical care cert., however, I know and expect they will put me through addition training more pertinant to the area of NICU. Thanks so much!
