Questions to Ask Yourself When Accepting a Nursing Position

questions-to-ask-yourself-when-accepting-a-nursing-positionAre you an LPN or registered nurse in Tampa, Florida, who is thinking of accepting a nursing position offered by a trusted staffing agency? If so, then make sure to think carefully!

It is important to remember that you have rights and responsibilities when considering an assignment. For example, if you are accepting an assignment servicing nursing homes in Hollywood, Florida, that you think is out of your skillset, you have the obligation to refuse. The following are questions you need to ask yourself before diving into a job offer.

  • What is the assignment and what does it entail?

    Let them clarify what the job entails.

  • What kind of patients will you care for?

    Make a critical assessment of each patient’s needs, as well as identify whether you have the skillset for the job.

  • Do you have the knowledge and experience to manage the patients assigned to you?

    Before acquiring a license, a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse in Amityville, New York, must pass the NCLEX to certify their knowledge about the profession. If you are pursuing your first job, choose to work for a facility that focuses more on patients you’re comfortable handling instead of a facility that offers specialized services for highly-complex conditions.

  • Is there an ongoing staffing problem in the facility you’re going to work in?

    Identify the unmet standards of care resulting in ongoing staffing inadequacies. This may result in a request for “safe harbor” and/or peer review.

At Clinical Staffing Resources, we work with our professionals, such as our certified nursing assistant in Brooklyn, New York, to determine the best job environment for them.
