This question sounds terribly rhetorical. I know how to get a job. I am a great interviewer and I am natural salesman. I have a morale question regarding going from RN directly to ICU. I truly believe I will be able to make the adjustments I need and will be able to have thick skin and take criticism so that part does not concern me either.
If I am asked during the interview why do I want to start in ICU or something along those lines what answer should I give? I have heard some new grads have been recommended in the interview to step down. Then during the interview the interviewee would state that they truly want to be in ICU and would be very disappointed in med/surg. This is really not being honest with your future employer. It is taking caring of what you need to move on. What is the best way to handle a issue/question like this? Obviously the hospital does not want to spend 20-50 thousand dollars over the next two years training you to become a great ICU nurse only to see you leave during the 3rd year for graduate school.
This brings up another point that I have seen on this site. When do you tell your supervisor you have been accepted into CRNA school?
Thanks for all answers/imput in advance!
