RCNP Graduate Uses RCNP Experience to Land Job

I just want to let you know that I have recently accepted an offer from a local hospital in their New Grad Emergency Department! I start next week :0!  

During the interview, I was able to use so many different behavioral and clinical experiences I had through RCNP. The manager was very impressed that I went out my own way to seek more experiences. I just want to take this moment to thank you again.
