RoyalNurse2010's Latest Activity

  1. Really want to find something else to do as a nurse, other than working in medical/surgical unit. My feet and back are starting to bother me from constantly walking, standing and lifting. My hours have been cut because of renovations and I dont have time to use when I am cancelled from work. I have really ben thinking about going into home health/ hospice. I really would appreciate if someone can give me tips on the pros/ cons and good companies to work for in Alabama. Thanks

    two offers on the table need some career advice please

    I know that the hospital is best for my career with me being a new nurse but it really bothers me thinking about this because one of my fellow classmates who is now a good friend of mine highly recommended me for the job in the ltc facility and I dont wont to let her down. What should I tell her if I dont accept the job in the LTC Facility. Its hard to make a decision... they both pay the same, are night shift and they both are about five minutes away from me. I really think the LTC position will be a less stressful than a job in med/surge but my carrer path is the most important.

    My WEAKNESSES

    Thanks for your advice. I have sat back and examine myself and I have come up with quite a few things to mention as my weaknesses.

    My WEAKNESSES

    During interviews you are most likely to get asked about your strengths and weaknesses.but what do u say when you cant think of your weakness. I havent really notice any on my past jobs. I have good communication, organizational, and leadership skills and do my best at what i do. I have never been written up, always received good evaluations with the max percentage for a increase in wages.i have always been the one chosen to train other staff members and when i thought about leaving a job my employers tried their best to keep me there. I ask this because i am a new nurse and i have a interview in a few days and i am trying to think of something i can say when i am asked this question. I definitely dont know it all so i am sure its something that i have missed.everyone have weaknesses?!!

    Did I doublecross her?

    I called her last nite to see if she had found a job and her answer was yes... at the same hospital she and I interviewed at. So she ended up getting the position but I have no hard feelings. I was just feeling bad because of her attitude towards me after I emailed my qualifications to get myself a interview.
