  1. Hello to all. Ive been practicing as a peds homecare nurse for over 6 mos now and absolutely LOVE IT! Just wondering if a seasoned peds nurse can offer words of advices on how to become more involved and competent while providing care to my babies. By the way, my pts are mainly trached and vented and gtubed. Thanks in advance....
  2. Does anyone care to share good or bad experiences doing homecare for Preferred? Ive worked there fr about 6mos now and love how they conduct but was interested in hearing from others about good or bad experiences with them?
  3. Just wondering if any one works or hs worked for Preferred Healthmates in Nj, if so, care to share?

    How i landed a new grad position

    @mtshevlin I was totally unaware that I sounded arrogant, I though more so just excited than anything b/c I know how hard it is out here to land a position. If you are not able to be receptive of people trying to give ideas, log off. U never know what peice of information that may be helpful to someone even it has not helped u. It just might not apply to you that's all. This is ALLNURSES right, "nurses helping nurses." @ Paco386 message me if I can be of any assistance in you endeavors. Good luck to all.

    Panicking about the job market

    Well considering the job shortage for new grads, I was able to land an interview at John Hopkins in MD and Cooper in Camden NJ. I got job offers for both but decided to go with Cooper in their Critical Care Unit for new grads. I graduatedin Dec 09 but now I just have to pass my boards. LISTEN GUYS, THERE ARE JOBS OUT THERE. I started my job search in October, two months before graduation. I think what helped me the most was an impeccable resume PLUS cover letter. Do not try to skimp on the COVER LETTER because you may be passed over due to it. I specialize in writing resumes on the side so I knew just how to format and what to put in it. THANK GOD. I was told by some that my resume looked professionally done. Next, register with a site like Indeed.com or careerbuilder and have an alert emails sent to you every day that SPECIFY new grads positions. I'm tellin ya I got about 5-10 a day. Also, if it states experience required DO NOT APPLY, if it states experience preferred then DO APPLY. Some jobs sent to me were 10 miles and no more than 30 miles away from me but they were NEW GRAD positions. Remember a beautifully written cover letter and resume gets you noticed and in the door, start with that first. GOOD LUCK to all and reme,ber tghere are jobs you just have to be unique in your approach and slither through the cracks. Oh by the way, the position at Cooper was not even posted on their website but I took initiative to call their HR and ask. They told me no not right now maybe later and 1 mos later they called me for an interview. I am truly blessed. Be patient.
