    Is it appropriate to ask for time off during an interview?

    Thanks for that information, I did not know that. Why shouldn't a new grad accept a pool position? I just ask because many of my class mated accepted pool positions..

    It's two and a half weeks. I was also wondering if I should ask for a pool position, which I think might be a good way to get that time off. I believe this hospital allows pool to select their work days each month , so I was thinking I could just not pick up shifts for those 2.5 weeks. But IDK if that is a good idea, or even possible?

    Yeah, my parents have actually been saving for this since I found out I got into nursing school.
  4. I am a new grad and have an interview tomorrow (my first one since graduating). My parents have surprised me with a 2 1/5 week vacation in Europe as a graduation gift. The vacation is set for this June. Luckily they have not purchased anything yet. Ideally I would like to postpone the vacation, but I cant because it is also a gift for my sister who is only free in June due to school and work etc. I am wondering if informing the interviewer that I would like time off in the near future will lessen my chance of getting the job. Thank you for your advice in advance.

    New grad application question

    So this is probably a silly question, but here I go... I am recent graduate and am currently working on an application for a RN position and there is a question I am not sure how to answer: "Please select all of the nursing areas you have experience working in:" and then it list all the specialties, such as ICU, ER etc.. So would I mark the areas where I did clinicals or do I select "none of the above" since technically I haven't "worked" anywhere? (All my previous jobs have been at restaurants and the like). Thanks in advance :)
  6. Hi, I'm working on a care plan and I have this question that I do not understand. I guess I am confused by "nursing staff resources".. I am not asking for anyone to do my homework, i am just trying to understand what is meant by this so I can answer the question. "Describe how you demonstrated or witnessed appropriate use of nursing staff resources to provide care in a cost effective manner." Thank you in advance

    What are core measures criteria?

    My patient has respiratory failure, which is not listed. Does this mean my patient does not meet core measures criteria?

    Thank you!!
  9. I'm working on paperwork for clinical, but my instructor did not go over "core measures criteria". I've tried googling this but still could not figure it out. I included the questions to give an idea of what I'm talking about, I am not asking for answers to my clinical paperwork. Just trying to understand what this means and how to answer. thank you. 1. Does your patient meet core measures criteria? What data supports your response? 2. What interventions are related to core measures?
