"Student" applying to hospital's. Should I tell them...

  1. 0
    Hi there!

    I literally just turned in my application to the Maricopa County RN program!

    In the meantime, I have been trying to get hired on with one of the local hospitals. For months. I would love to be able to work and go to school at the same place - to say nothing of "getting paid" to do both! I have applied to dozens of job postings: admin; cook; janitor; security; coffee shop... everything!.... but I never mentioned my nursing school.

    I am wondering if I might have more luck being hired if I am upfront:
    -I am a nursing school applicant. I am awaiting placement into a school.
    -I would love to be in the partnership program between XYZ Maricopa Community College and this hospital.

    ....or

    Should I keep that off of the application.... off of the application, but bring it up in the interview.... or not say anything to anyone?!

    I don't know how you'd include that in your resume but I'd definitely bring it up in the interview - if you get one.

    If you have an area for your "objective" in your resume, you can maybe include something along the lines of "looking to gain experience in a hospital setting in an effort to prepare for a career in the medical field" then elaborate in your interview. They will appreciate the fact that you are goal oriented and have an interest in that particular medical center....

    I'd put it in a cover letter. Introduce yourself and spell out your goals for the future.
