Registered Nurse

I’ve been working as an RN for ~2.5yrs now with experience in AcuteTele & CVICU. I’m doing my MSN Administration right now. Threw my hat in randomly for a nurse manager position and got called in for an interview but now feeling very nervous as I prep for it. I know I don’t have enough experience compared to some of the other applicants but any word of advice from fellow RNs & nurse managers on how to make myself seem like a better candidate? I want to try my hardest!

    Pros

    Relatively cheap food in the cafeteria. co-workers get along for the most part because they are all united against management. Nice to work alone if you are introverted, but you may like patient interaction

    Cons

    Too many workers have gotten injured, people are overworked They try to limit your overtime so you don't make too much money Low pay for the nonsense you deal with, treated like you're not important, very busy and always short staffed, unequal pay opportunities for younger women, no respect, favoritism towards young males. Your name is 'transport' rather than what is on your birth certificate. Management puts pressure on you to work faster because patients are waiting but there aren't enough workers to go as fast as they would like. Will easily clash with managers if you have a strong personality and can't take orders from someone telling you when you can eat lunch or have a break. If you don't ask for lunch, they may forget about you, or they can not give you one because it's so busy. The uniforms are ugly, they changed from scrubs to prevent patients from confusing transporters with nurses. Other workers from other departments will snitch on you if they see you sitting down even if you have no patient to move. Know your rights and be tough skinned or they will use you. You are your own advocate so don't be afraid to speak up Some will try to guilt trip you for not being able to work. Be smart and listen to your body if you are feeling sick or worn out from the week, don't go to work because moving those heavy patients will only make it worse. Seemed like slavery. They do not care about you. It's all politics. Go somewhere else if you know what's good for you.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, co-workers

    Cons

    Just don't feel appreciated for all that we do normally in addition to the pandemic. pay for parking. spread staff so thin so sometimes it's unsafe for the patients. SO SHORT STAFFED, get a text everyday to see if you can work, no work life balance.
