So I was really shocked because I got an interview from one hospital and was given an opportunity to shadow someone. But I do not know yet if I was really hired or not because I was not able to talk to the nurse manager after shadowing. And when I had my interview in hospital A, I got invited for an interview in hospital B. I applied for ED nurse position in both hospitals. My problem right now is, should I mention to hospital A once they call me that I have an interview this week with hospital B? Should I just give up the hospital B opportunity? Or give it a try and see which hospital will work for me? 

 

The nurse I shadowed was nice. I like her so much. I learned a lot from her. I am really confused here. So I need guidance. Anyone knows which one is better?

I would go on the second interview just for interviewing practice, and to see what they have to offer you and if you would be a good fit. You don't have a solid offer yet from A, but I wouldn't mention B to A or vice versa.

Continue applications for both. Accept the one you want. If you get two offers, choose the best. Good luck.

Congrats!

Good luck securing one or the other (with decent pay, hopefully)!

One hospital is offering 29  per hour. I do not know if this is a decent pay though. Lol. I am still waiting for the other hospital's offer

 

Thanks!

Factor in things like shift differentials, OT/holiday pay, education reimbursement, and other benefits when you compare the two offers. Also, the commute, location, and shift offering are important considerations.
