  1. are highly skilled in all aspects of patient care.
  2. show loyalty to the institution and its leaders.
  3. can perform highly skilled procedures, such as administration of IV and morphine.
  4. graduated with straight As.

How might a prospective employee get an unbiased view of expectations of a future employer?

  1. Take an informal tour of the facility.
  2. Read the employer’s advertisement for jobs.
  3. Ask someone who is currently employed there.

up with a(n):

  1. thank-you note.
