I work in a large trauma center. Ideally we are to go to pre op to see the patient, but due to workload and time constraints its often just not possible. I would say its about 50/50 how many nurses do one or the other. And I agree that its a dangerous situation.
I tried to send you a PM, but I can't. Would you mind sharing the application/interview process as an out of state applicant? I am relocating to OH in a couple months and I'm curious about it. Did you have a preliminary phone interview?
Do you have your BSN? I am not personally looking, but from what I hear most NYC hospital are only hiring BSN's.
Maybe try expanding your search to just outside the city also. NJ is just a train ride away...
Times are tough right now, I wish you luck.
Does anyone know of weekend ACLS/BLS courses in Suffolk county? My certifications have expired, and my employer will not send me to the recert classes, so I think its time to take matters in to my own hands.
Thank you Hearnursing3.
I pay union dues now, so I am used to the unions and all their pros and cons.
The overall feedback on OSU has been positive. Its definitley at the top of my list.
I will look at OhioHealth too, thanks.
