    2 weeks notice

    Wow, this is such a hard situation. I'm not goint to tell you what to do, but i know i've been there and felt that way; critical care is NOT easy starting off in and your preceptors can really make or break you. I hope you come to the conclusion that's best for you!!!

    Question for the CCRNs

    Yeah, I really don't understand why you think it'd be dangerous. I'm a new grad just off orientation and although I'm not getting the most critical pt.s on the floor, I am being built up to that point with one or two gtts, and the occasional CABx1 or mini valve (:)). Yes, they're babying me but I am new, what should I expect? What WOULD be dangerous is if they gave you a post-op bleeding pt. whose going down your first day off orientation, but that would say more about your unit than you.... I felt like you but opposite. I worked in Med-Surg as a tech for 2 years prior to getting this nursing job and couldn't really see myself entering that specialty.. you can do it if you really want it!!!! I think the hardest part would be actually *getting* a job in the ICU, but you sound like a fantastic candidate.

    When to start applying

    I never put licensing on my resume... Also, when you put your degree, put xxx School of Nursing, BSN/ASN anticipated: November 2009, Current GPA: x.xx

    questions stops @ 265, what is my status??

    Good luck! Check with your state board of nursing's website, just go to the "verify license" part. I've heard a lot of my fellow grads have heard back in less than 24 hours!:typing:nurse:

    George Washington Hospital New Grads...?

    You email, you call and yet nothing. I feel like at least we should get a mass email like "No thanks, try again somewhere else" instead of this limbo they have us in. Since I've taken the NCB test I've heard nothing despite leaving phone messages and sending emails. Maybe they should hire more than one person to do this job cause it seems like she's overwhelmed.

    Christiana Care Internships for new Grads

    Hi lsm-- I applied for the medical internship and the critical nurse internship and the ED internship. I got rejected from the ED internship and I got an interview from the other ones. He,y I thought it went pretty good and I thought I answered the questions the best I can. I heard they want to be magnet so theyll hire from within (their cnas) and theyll only hire bsns. plus i've never had any hospital experience, only nursing home experience. what kills me is they make you wait for so long. most of the other internship programs ive applied to let you know in early april! this sucks b/c by then, they want you to sign a contract. christiana is my 1st choice and if they don't take me for somethhing, ive wasted the new grad application cycle and won't be able to apply until later this year..... oh well.

    Yeah, Due to the volume and types of applications we received (blah blah blah), the selection process was extremely competitive..... Although your experience... blah blah....... For those that interviewed, what was your GPA and what kind of questions did they ask at the interviews?
