My hope is that you don't forget everything you have learned before you actually get to use it. 'Cause I can't remember half of my drugs! Enjoy. You are reading page 2 of What Would You Do ROOKIE?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I am almost halfway through an ADN program. Every hospital we visit for clinicals is hiring new grads. You can do it.

I love your writing.

I would take the job. I spent the last few months looking and I would have (and did) take the first offer I got. No one wants us inexperienced new grads. If you need an income, it makes sense to take a nursing position if the other options are not career-related. You can continue to look for a better job and gain experience in the meantime. Everyone is crazy on-edge when the state comes... it may not be as bad on a normal day.

Nothing, but from what I inferred, it was said in a disrespectful tone. The guy in the initial poster's avatar, though, BTW? CUTEYPANTS...

All I can say is....I LOVE your writing!

As far as the job...go with what your heart tells you. If it doesn't seem right don't do it. Your instincts are always correct.:nono:

Are you hired on full time? You might want to cut it down to part time or PRN then continue looking for jobs. Work there for 6 months to 1 year and get out!

I had almost the same kind of interview recently at a PRN position I applied for. I took the job and its amazing pay. Top 200 rehab facilities in the US was its claim to fame. I did 3 days of video watching and 2 days of floor orientation. I then picked up 32 hours of work (4 shifts) and...

I'd rather work as a server or bartender again than do that kind of work. Worst experience I've had in years regarding nursing.

The place sounds EXTREMELY shady.... I wouldn't do anything unless you get the offer of course. If you get the offer I personally would turn it down. What if the place got cited again while you're working there? You'd have that on your record and your resume would say that you had worked there at that time. If the money problems outweigh the risk, take the job but focus your effort on getting as far away as possible. I took the first offer I got after nursing school. Bad decision on my part. The job was just awful. I had to leave after a year of it because of bad panic attacks from the stress of the job. I have a WAY better job now. When interviewing this go-round, I did not take the first offer I got. :)
