Hello All, I was hoping to get some advise from some experienced RN's...I'm a fairly new RN who currently works at a skilled nursing facility and have been there for the last year now. I have been applying at different hospitals/physician offices in my area for about the last month, because everyone has told me "get your 1yr experience, and you can go anywhere". I have already determined skilled nursing is NOT my niche, and want to explore all of the wonderful options nursing has to offer. Well, I was offered a position in a neurology office in a very strange way...I found this posting on Monster.com and applied via email with cover letter, resume, and professional references a couple of days ago. I received a call today about the position from a man who "claimed" to be the accountant/office manager for the practice. He pretty much gave me a phone interview, called some of my references prior to speaking with me, and then offered me to start next wednesday in the office...all without filling out an application, no background check, no drug-screen, nothing! He said they want to hire a couple of part-time RN's to work 1-2 days a week who will assist the physician and pretty much be with him along side him at all times (i'm guessing because of liability issues with being neuro, pain meds, etc.). He claims the doctor wants to get a feel for how the RN is in a working environment, and see if it will work for him. They will pay you for your services at the end of the day, and may put you on payroll at a later time (i'm assuming if the doctor likes you). Now, I have decided if I take this job, I will keep my current position, seeing as how it's only part-time anyways. I cannot afford to just be working part-time, and I would be willing to work both if it works out. And if it doesn't, I still have a full-time job, and about $200 extra in my pocket for my time on that one day I show up to work. My question is...does this seem a little strange to anyone? Maybe i'm just so used to the process of 2 interviews, application, drug screening, background investigation, license verification, orientation, etc. Has anyone ever been offered a position in such a way? Or is this something I should be leary about? Any advise anyone could offer would be helpful! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!
