Working at my Mom’s Hospital


Hi! My mom is a nurse manager of outpatient units. Fortunately, I was able to get a job of a student nurse in the inpatient areas for the Summer. Our commute is an hour, so I usually go in with her in the mornings and until late afternoon but we work in entirely different areas. My question is- is that weird to work at the same hospital as one’s mom? How do you perceive this? It is a wonderful learning opportunity, especially considering that the hospitals near my house aren’t hiring students this Summer.

As long as she isn't your direct supervisor you have nothing to worry about. There's a small chance you might get teased a bit and maybe one or two "you got the job because of your mom" sour grapes kind of people but overall unless you broadcast it it probably won't even make a blip on most people's radar.
