Took the plunge, applied for UC job!

I can't breathe! I'm so excited! I was recruited and have been biding my time to apply for two reasons: 1) the posting wasn't available and Turkey) I was skeered.

So. I submitted the application and updated one of my two mentors. After I did that, I logged onto my hospital email and the mentor had already sent me a message asking where my application is.

Well. He's got it now!

This is really gonna happen! I feel blessed and lucky that I won't have to be one of those new grad FNPs desperately looking for a job.

AND because of the advice here I requested 94K/yr instead of the 88-91 they were were suggesting because it's the same organization I've been a part of for 7 years AND I'll be worth it. I'll be making them a bunch (probably after 6 months when I get a little faster).

There will be RVU bonuses at the year-end and room for growth. No PTO, but good scheduling-ish. CEUs and other industry required fees paid.

This feels great!

You are worth it!!! Great job-keep us updated if they accepted your requested salary or countered etc.

Isn't it a great feeling to have a job prior to

Graduation 😊

I worked in uc as an RN and loved it.

Woohoo! :woot: Please keep us posted. Wishing for your success in the job search! :D

Urgent Care. I love the environment. I'll miss the experience of primary care from clinicals and getting the satisfaction of follow up success (or failure) and knowing how my interventions progressed. But I like the ability to see such a variety and perform procedures.

Very cool, if I were ever going to use my FNP as my primary that is exactly where I'd want to work. Thanks for letting me know what its called, lol. :facepalm:

Looks like you are very prepared! during the interview of the job I accepted, the physician asked mainly about my clinical experiences-how many patients I was seeing, what type, level of independence etc. at the urgent care interviews I had, they asked abt my nursing experience and how that related to this position, how comfortable I felt with xray interpretation, suturing, ortho stabilizing, peds, gero etc. overall, my np interviews were much less strenuous than all of my rn interviews. They seemed more personality based amd whether I "meshed" well with the other staff.

That's the route that I'm probably going to take after school. I might do a one year fellowship in UC with the hospital system that I'm currently working in after graduation to gain more experience.

I shouldn't be nervous, honestly, because the doctor interviewing asked me to apply. He's taken me under his wing in the ER when he filled in (kind of locum, but not, he's the VP over the outpatient setting and was just helping the ED). I know how to do incisions and drainage, minor suture repair, because he taught me.

So, I guess it's just a formality, but I feel like he can still change his mind or like this is just a prank. Irrational, I know, but EEK!

Interviews are stressful no matter what, even if it is more of a formality. Especially if theyre making you wait so long!!!!!

Just remember, act confident ( even if you arent) and keep telling yourself that he already knows you so you dont need to prove how awesome you are!
