  1. I’ve been working at a pediatric doctor’s office for almost a year now. Before this job I was on a med-surg floor at a hospital. I only lasted 3 months and hated it. My co-workers were toxic, we were understaffed, and the patients were mean/disrespec...
  2. I’m a new grad with 3 months experience on a med-surg floor. I usually had 5-6 patients and it was too much for me. I was constantly running around the whole day with hardly any time to even go to the bathroom. There were a ton of meds to give out, c...
  3. I want to become a nurse in one of these specialties, but almost all the jobs I see say they require experience in that area already. How did you start straight out of nursing school? And what did you do to get into a specialty? Thanks!
  4. Has anyone heard back from a recruiter or had their application status change yet? I applied on November 12 and have yet to hear anything back. If anyone has any information from the last cohort that would be helpful too. Thanks!
  5. I thought I was doing well in my orientation until around week 9 when my preceptor starting telling my manager a bunch of things I was doing wrong. This was the first time I was aware of these problems. My manager called me in for a meeting and my co...
  6. I’m going to my manager’s office on my day off to pick up some paperwork. It’s not a meeting or anything, I’m just picking up the papers and leaving. What should I wear? Should I put scrubs on? Or just wear my casual everyday clothes (jeans, shirt, f...
  7. I graduated in May and this is the first interview I'm going to have. The interview is with a recruiter. If I pass the interview with the recruiter I will then have an interview with the hiring manager. What kind of questions should I expect from a ...
  8. I want to be a pediatric nurse. I however have no experience in this area. I'm afraid that if I apply and get a pediatric job that I will know nothing once I start. I don't want other nurses to think I'm stupid and I don't want to make a mistake and ...
  9. I don't have any previous work experience other than babysitting my neighbor's children. The application won't let me leave the section blank. I'm not sure how I should go about this. Should I put down my employer as my neighbor? I only watch her kid...
  10. I'm not quite sure what order on my resume would be the best. Thank you for any advice. What I have now: - Professional summary (4 sentences) - Certifications & Licensure (RN license & BLS Provider) - Education (2 bachelor's degrees) - Studen...
  11. Are you going searching for jobs in other states? If you aren't moving what's the farthest you are willing to commute?
  12. New grad nurse advice needed

    I recently graduated and passed my NCLEX. I’ve been at home for about 2 months now because of the coronavirus. I’ve gotten used to living this way (sleeping in, having no homework or tests to study for, being with my parents and sisters 24/7, not a l...
  13. On my resume I have a heading called "student clinical experience". I currently have my medical-surgical and transition experience listed. I am unsure whether I should include my clinical rotations, however. I was in an accelerated BSN program so I h...
  14. I can't seem to find much information about any residency programs in New Jersey. Has anyone been in one of these programs or have information on any? Thanks!
