Hey nurses and murses,
I'm a recent grad and I'm taking my boards in about a week. I have a specialty in mind that I want to pursue and practice, but as we know its very difficulty to find internships and/or jobs. Other than placing my clinical rotations on my resume, I practically have no health care experience. Fortunately I have position I that was offered and an interview for an internship in the dream specialty that I am pursuing. I would like y'alls input.
The job offering is not in the specialty, but I can start effective immediately.
The internship interview is a month away and it wouldn't start for another 4 months.
Should I take the job offer? Should I wait the time from the dream job?
What else could I be doing in the down time to pad the resume, especially if the interview goes bust?
What are you guys doing in the meantime to make yourself more marketable while applying for jobs and studing for NCLEX?
Some ideas and advice that I have been getting are ACLS, PALS, instructor BLS courses, handout resumes.
Thanks for your input !!
