I'm a BSN student, Freshie!
I really want to get a job at ICU, and it seems like it's really tough to get a position as
a new grad..
Is there any good way to prepare myself and increase my chance to get a job there?
I have been working at a dental office as a dental assistant for a year..and that's all.
I couldn't really find an internship or externship.. so I'm gonna be volunteering at a hospital (inpatient care) in about a few weeks! (yay!)
From my research having EMT experience or CNA/PCT experience would be great..is that correct? I am thinking about getting trained as CNA and work as a part time or per diem CNA (hopefully it works out that way) Would this help me? Or should I do something else?
Are there any other ways to get myself prepared to be a competitive nurse?
(Well, of course I will need to keep up my GPA really high! I'm working on it! hehe)
