Hello all & a HUGE thank you for all your tips, tricks & insight. I am "new" to this site, although I've been absorbing from a far. I am planning on applying July 1st to my program of choice, which is only 1! ( that makes me very nervous). But my question is about experience, I have seen the thread about experience but I don't ever see anyone mention charge nurse role. I currently have been a RN for 15yrs, 12 of those in MICU/SICU as well as Hemodialysis. For the past 5yrs I have been in a Team Leader role (essentially charge nurse over 10 bed SICU & 24 bed MICU, run to Rapid Responses, Codes, start difficult IV's house wide etc. So I haven't had specific pt assignments. I would appreciate your thoughts on my chances for admission, as really feel I have 1 shot.
