There are so many hospitals throughout the nation and some are great and some are average. If you are looking to work through a healthcare staffing company as a RN or if you are looking for a permanent RN position, here are some tips to help you find the best landing spot.
- Does the hospital provide quality RN training? Is there a supervisor, a strong RN or a nurse educator there to help you with your questions and show you their process for patient care.
- Is there a team atmosphere when you arrive at the hospital? A team atmosphere is important for an agency nurse as well as a new full-time nurse because a team helps each other in crisis and helps each other grow. When you start a shift, you want to make sure there is a nurse that is going to help you with patient transition and gives you the opportunity to provide consistent quality care.
- Are there opportunities to float to other specialties? Experience, experience, experience is what everyone says is needed to work as a RN but how do you get experience if no one will give you a chance. One way is to start working in a smaller or rural hospital and then they will float you to different specialties if you show them your willingness to learn.
