    soon to be newgrad needs advice!!

    Definitely be open to other opportunities! Try for new grad opportunities first, but sometimes those are few and far between, especially for this specialty. Nurse managers can also be a little picky as well, since it is a very competitive field. But don't give up! If you don't end up getting a new grad opportunity, try med/surg - especially a telemetry unit since you are continually reading strips, this skill will be useful! Good luck! :)

    New Grad-Leave Top Ranked Hospital For ICU Job?

    In my personal opinion, (and experience), whichever you chose it will give you at least a year of experience on the division. There are both positives and negatives to each choice: 1 year of ICU experience is a major plus that not many new grads have the opportunity for, but on the other hand, transferring internally may be easier, since the nursing managers already have an established relationship, as well as you already have an established relationship with the company. It just so happened that I settled on the latter, because of my relationship. And just for reference, I had applied to several hospitals outside of my institution and the hiring process was exceedingly more difficulty than an internal transfer. It just depends on the type of experience you want during your first year. Transitioning from nursing assistant to RN has a major learning curve no matter which unit you're working for.

    Reference Request

    Okay, so I'm new to job seeking while still being employed. I'm currently a RN on a surgical unit, and I was applying around to other nursing jobs at different facilities because I'm becoming unhappy with the situation I'm in. I wasn't seriously looking at the time, but this facility had a couple open positions available so I applied. I was surprised to hear back from HR so quickly after, and to get an interview with a hiring manager! For Labor and Delivery - my DREAM field. Well, the recruiter sent me an email explaining that I needed to send them references through a site, which will then send a survey to them (my references) about my work related behaviors and such. Well, that just makes me nervous because I was just low key looking for a new position. I'm not sure how my nursing manager will react by getting such an mail from another company. And like I said before, I'm completely new to this. I'm not sure how to go about doing this. Any advice would greatly be appreciated.
