I am currently a medical technologist (aka lab geek) and I am getting ready to graduate in December with the hopes of securing a position in the ICU. I sent an introductory email to the nurse manager of the ICU/Neuro ICU (They are sister units and the nurses float back and forth) and her response was pretty encouraging. She said they didn't have any current positions but "that could change at any time. Regardless, if this is where you want to be, we can discuss options to get here." We set up a meeting for next tuesday. This is not technically an interview, as my email was totally unsolicited and they dont have open positions. However, I know it kind of is. I want to present myself as utilizing the meeting as my opportunity to learn more about their unit, what challenges I might face as a new grad on a speicalty unit, etc...I feel I've been pretty forward by initiating the correspondence, so I don't want to walk in there in a three piece suit with a resume and 50 reasons why she should hire me. What suggestions do you have for questions/topics I might discuss with her that: 1)really do give me good insight into their floor AND 2)are questions you would ask in an official nursing interview that are NOT schedule/benefit/money related.I appreciate any suggestions you may have!
