Sara, congrats on becoming a nurse. you did a lot of work to get here. I get both frustrated & rewarded in nursing, but more rewarded than anything. When you go for the interview, be well groomed and confident. That says a lot for a person. Ask questions about their facility(do they do 12 hour shifts, computerized charting, floating,mentoring program...how long,etc). think of ways that they will benefit from your work...friendly, willing to learn, special interest in pediatrics etc, want to get your certificate in geriatrics, etc. It is okay to tell your strengths & weaknesses & your willingness to learn...computerized charting, hospice, etc.
Good luck. Relax & enjoy your time in nursing.
We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face ... we must do that which we think we cannot.
I AM a winner !!
