So this is what I wrote:
Goal: My personal goal for this year is to continue to grow professionally with Intermountain Healthcare (IHC). Seeing that I will be graduating in April in Nursing, I would like to continue employment with IHC as a registered nurse. It is my goal to obtain a nursing job by August 2012. Specifically, I would like to obtain a nursing job in the Pediatrics, NICU, or Labor and Delivery departments at UVRMC.
Regarding my personal goal, I was wondering if you knew of or foresee a possible need for nurses at UVRMC Pediatrics between April and August? I would love to continue working in this department. I have loved being a part of the UVRMC Pediatric team and would love to be a part of this team as a registered nurse. I also have interest in working as a master float employee so that I could further my nursing skills in Pediatircs, NICU, and Mom/Baby.
Long story short: I was called by my manager yesterday to inform me that she was ecstatic that I wanted a job there and that she wanted me as an employee!!! I think I just learned a very important lesson. Being bold, you get what you want. If you don't, someone else will take it before you have a chance.
