  2. New hire and pregnant... need advice Please.

    That is my fear. Thank you for you advice! At the same time I don't want to be the pest that is leaving on maternity 10 months after being hired. I don't want them to hate me for that. Also, all the exposure to X-rays and not being able to always get...

  7. Help me get into the Nurse recruiters head??

  14. Help me get into the Nurse recruiters head??

    Avaloncar I have been applying to every hospital in my area. However, that particular one is the largest. It is a really bad position to be in. We are no longer new grads but also don't have enough experience to be considered for most positions. Good...
