Help! Had my first job on psych unit and failed orientation. Then they let me precept with someone on a med surge floor for 2 weeks. The preceptor told them I did well. However, after that two weeks was up they told me they were hiring on that floor but I would have to apply and interview for the job. Being new back into the working world, I guess I am not so polished with interviews. HR e-mailed me and said "now that you have interviewed for this unit, call me and we can determine the next steps. So I did. They said they thought I would have a hard time keeping up on med surge floor and basically said I sucked at the interview. They had me resign. I feel like such a loser. However, I imediately applied at a nursing home, got interviewed and am starting next week. I dont think I want to stay ina nursing home, dont want med surge....would like to work for a gastroenterologist office. Don't know how to get in. I only have an associates degree..am 50 years old, newly divorced with a son to raise. Any advice? I have been looking to get certification for gastroent. nurse. (CGRN).. can't seem to find where to take the course..only where to take the test. P.s.. I live in Michigan. Any other ideas on where I could get a nursing job without a bachelors? Please.. I am desparate!!!
