Hi everyone just wanted to update - Ryan was able to get a great job at a local skilled nursing home ( 176 bed facility ) and he passed all his testing and pre-employment physical! they offered him a great package! he starts Monday ! the bigger hospitals all want a years experience so this is a fantastic way for him to get that for his resume but to be honest the pay is more than the other hospital he applied at ! we are super thrilled for him! We are taking him out " scrub" shopping Saturday and now I can have my remote back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOW.... what great news. Skilled care nursing homes can be quite the challenge. I worked at a huge one here in Milwaukee and it was more like a hospital than a nursing home. I did the purchasing and ran the Central Supply but also had a lot of resident contact. He will get excellent experience there. Good for him!!
Yay for Ryan! Congratulations on the new job. Thanks for the update @BabyDuke
Yeay! Congrats!!! Nursing homes give great experience opportunity... it might be a permanent thing for him if he likes it. Not too hectic but also challenging.
I got Bullied and loving it!

I am a BSN and would tell you, as you see, very rough out there even for us. Look for hospitals that have intern or new grad programs. And just a thought, how about the nurse corps for the experience (and a nice little bonus) and then he will not only have experience but be a veteran, which opens up the VA. I am so thankful I work at the VA at this time.
I'm a good girl, I promise
Congratulations .. I think it will be a long time before we see any real evidence of an upswing in the economy and in the job market. So very well done that he got such a good position when I am sure that there would have been a lot of competition for the same job!!!
