It can be pretty tough getting a job in the hospital setting as a new grad RN or as a somewhat new Rn. Have you tried Adult Day health centers? It's not a snf setting, no work weekends, & can be a good transition. You still do assessments, meds/treatments, charting, care planning, etc..& collab with program directors, Social worker, dieticians, pt, etc. I have colleagues who worked in ADH and know so much! They also are more experienced in dealing with family and other HC members. It makes me wish i tried workin at a adult day health as a new RN instead of waiting n hoping for a job, its experience! If you live near Antioch try RSNC, they also have a concord location. My friend told me they hire new grad RNs, somewhat new RNs too! BSN degrees preferred. They pay pretty well too. How do i know this? I toured there before as a nursing student & friend knows people there. Hurry and apply! I posted it on here, who knows who'll beat ya to it. Goodluck & much success.
